bread 11-3-13 Duke Chapel

-Posted sermon “The Power and The Glory” by Sam Wells, visiting at Duke Chapel – here
from this sermon:
‘our mistake is we think we need the power to get the glory… either we fail to get the power, or even worse, we do.. then realize the power doesn’t get us anything… only to discover that we only get the power when we are prepared to enter glory…and what is the glory? the ever expanding, ever embracing, ever encircling love of God, the glory of the cross…the church thought it needed the power to see the glory..’

-reminded me of something from C.S. Lewis’s The Weight of Glory

‘For glory means good report with God, acceptance by God, response, acknowledgement, and welcome into the heart of things. The door on which we have been knocking all our lives will open at last.’
