Holy Trinity Ankeny

Listen to sermons from Holy Trinity Lutheran Church.

Oct 22, 2012

Today's gospel starts with disciples obsessing over who's number one, which leads Jesus to say something about God's take on importance and power. Here Jesus makes it explicit that the reversal of values in God's community is a direct challenge to the values of the dominant culture, where wielding power over others is what makes you great. When we pray "your kingdom come" we are praying for an end to tyranny and oppression. We pray this gathered around the cross, a sign of great shame transformed to be the sign of great honor and service.

Thank you for tuning in to this weeks podcast. This is a sermon from Pastor Tim Olson, Lead Pastor for Mission and Vision at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church.
