Unfolding the Mystery

Sermon by our Exec (Transitional) Presbyter.

This sermon was offered for Albany Presbytery on March 25, 2014 at the Mayfield Central Presbyterian Church.  The scripture readings were Exodus 17 and I Corinthians 15: 51-58.  The Mayfield Church was burned to the ground in 2011 and through some Calvin Institute of Christian Worship grants has engaged in deep theological exploration of loss and grief and created amazing art that is woven throughout their new building that we worshipped in as a Presbytery for the first time today.  This includes their beautiful communion table that has a mosaic of shards of glass from the broken pieces of their felled stained glass windows that was created in worship by the community.  We heard a beautiful anthem in worship that the local community choir sang tonight that was commissioned for the rededication of their space.

Blessings overflow.  New life and growth rising from the ashes.
