Rev Vikki Waller – Length 18:51

Pentecost 17 – The most powerful of people, including Moses, Shakespeare, Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa, cannot use their power to satisfy the deepest needs of our souls – needs such as peace, meaning and love. The power of God is revealed most profoundly in love, and it cannot be manipulated by coercive force. Love is made perfect in weakness. The apostle Paul encourages the Christians at Philippi, and us, to be united, and to be like Christ in humility, service and self-sacrifice.
Exodus 17: 1-7; Philippians 2: 1-13; Matthew 21: 23-32
