Words To Live By

A good friend of mine delivered a lay sermon at Starmount Presbyterian Church this past Sunday morning. Although his sermon was well grounded in scripture and appropriate for Lent, his themes were universal. The title of his sermon was "Just Say Yes, Just Say No."

He suggested that we say NO to the wrong paths that tempt us each day. More importantly, he suggested that we say YES to letting go of anger, bitterness, and frustration, which burn energy in a non-productive way. He also pointed out that for many people, the anger that needs to depart is directed at themselves for something not handled well (see NO above).

It was a powerful message delivered masterfully.
