It's Not About Me


Sermon by The Rev. Christopher W. Hogin
Sunday, July 2, 2017

“All of this—everything is temporary: our material possessions, our bodies, our minds, and yes, even our relationships—all are temporary. We really own nothing, and no matter how painful this world may be, and no matter how many senseless acts we endure, in the end, God redeems it all. God redeems us.” From The Rev. Christopher W. Hogin’s sermon on Sunday, July 2, 2017.

The Gospel: Matthew 10:40-42

Jesus said, “Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward; and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous; and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple—truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.”
