Pilgrim Uniting Church, Adelaide SA
SUN 18-MAR-2018 - 11.00 AM Sermon
Rev Dr Greg Elsdon
Lent 5 – When Jesus was told that, for some reason or other, some Greeks would like to see him, he went into a discussion about a seed of wheat dying in the ground, in order that many more seeds might be produced in an expression of new life. He was predicting his own death; and he was also teaching about learning to die to the false life of a selfish, idolised self, and finding instead a true, eternal life of connection, love, intimacy, family and community – a life of compassion, justice, forgiveness and reconciliation. Many people have expressed an interest in Jesus himself, despite a lack of interest in "church".
Jeremiah 31: 31-34; John 12: 20-33
