Pilgrim Uniting Church, Adelaide SA
SUN 12-NOV-2017 - 11.00 AM Sermon
Rev Dr Greg Elsdon
Pentecost 23 – This week's 9.30am and 11am sermons were both based on the "Parable of the Ten Young Women", in which the women had to wait a long time, well into the night, for a bridegroom to turn up; and when the bridegroom finally arrived, five of the women were excluded because their lamp oil had run out. In our 9.30am sermon, the parable was interpreted in terms of the lamp oil; whereas in this 11.00am sermon, the emphasis was on the period of waiting. We need to pay attention to the presence of God; to make space to recognise his presence in our complex and confusing world. God is not elsewhere. Are you being watchful and attentive, or are you just driftng?
Matthew 25: 1-13
