Matthew 5: Inversions

This service was part of an ecumenical worship offering, bringing together the United Methodist Church of Geneva, the Geneva Lutheran Church, St Peter’s Catholic Church of Geneva, Fox Valley Presbyterian Church, and the Unitarian Universalist Society of Geneva. We gathered over 100 folks from our various congregations for worship, fellowship, and loads and loads of Thanksgiving pie.

The Gospel reading for the service was Matthew 5:1-16 (a brilliant, memorized reading starts at 18 minutes). I focused on the Beatitudes, and did a bit of exegesis on the word, markarioi, or, “blessed”. The 12 minute homily starts at around the 20min 40 second mark.
