Pilgrim Uniting Church

12 Flinders St, Adelaide, SA

SUN 02-JUL-2017 - 9.30 AM Sermon
Rev Bob Hutchinson – Length 21:56




Pentecost 4 – “Life begins at 40” – In the Bible, the number 40 is often used symbolically – 40 days of rain in the story of Noah; 40 years of wandering in the wilderness after the escape from Egypt; Jesus spending 40 days in the wilderness after his baptism. It is now 40 years since the foundation of the Uniting Church in Australia; and Psalm 40 offers some insights into looking back to the past; looking at the present; and considering the future. What happens next? Let us go forward as witnesses to the way of Jesus, bringing justice and kindness here and beyond, with open ear and humble heart.
Psalm 40: 1-17
