Sermon 2018-09-02 – Afraid to Get Dirty?

Posted on September 2, 2018, Pastor: Rev. Paul J. Allen, IV

Scripture:                   Mark 7: 1-8, 14-23

Sermon Title              Afraid to Get Dirty?

Sermon Theme:         Jesus accepted the outcast, the lonely, the unclean, the guilty, the broken people of this world and this is why he accepts us.  Jesus was not afraid to get dirty or to touch the unclean things in the world.  He was not afraid to do what was necessary even if it meant breaking tradition and trying something new.  Through his example we learn how to heal the unclean places within us and share the good news of Jesus Christ that is the freedom, forgiveness, and love of God.  We learn that we can be transformed, that the church must constantly be made new, and that our call is to impart the wonderful news that all people are accepted and expected in the Kingdom of God
