Rev Bob Hutchinson – Length 15:15




Pentecost 6 – "Time" – When time is mentioned in the scriptures, it can mean chronological time, 'chronos', measured using clocks and calendars; and it can also mean God's time, 'kairos', describing God's activity in history and personal affairs. In human terms, God's time might have little relation to clocks and calendars. God's spirit, like an erratic wind, blows us along in unexpected directions; it might take a long time to reach the destination that God intends, or it might happen all of a sudden. God is with us on our life journey, which can have rough patches as well as smooth; but with a companion like Jesus, who invites us to "come along with me", what could ultimately go wrong?
