6.19.19 Sermon - "Dwell in Wisdom and Truth"

This spirit of wisdom and truth that our writers have given us this morning are part of the trinity. And they show us how to live in those ways, that way we can look at the trinity and see how God dwells within themself. And we are invited into that very dwelling place so that we too can experience and know - truly know - that God dwells within us as well. God dwells within every human being. God dwells within all of creation - rivers, mountains, trees, plants for food and plants for beauty. Humans and animals, alike.

If you ever wonder whether or not you should pray for something for someone, if you ever wonder whether or not you should love someone, if you ever wonder how far should my forgiveness extend - the answer is within you. The spirit of truth and wisdom is within you. The answer lingers in this very community around you today. The answers are found in the dialog and the dance between the two. Ask for the trinity to reveal this wisdom and truth contained within you, and God - I believe - will surely receive the answer. And know that our God always errs on the side of grace, on the side of mercy, always errs on the side of love. That is a holy trinity that will never fail us. So may we all linger and dwell in wisdom and truth, just as the advocate - who is wisdom and truth - dwells within us.” - Rev. Jonathan Myers
