You have not come to something that can be touched, a blazing fire, and darkness, and gloom, and a tempest, and the sound of a trumpet, and a voice whose words made the hearers beg that not another word be spoken to them... But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God... ~ Hebrews 12:18-29, 22
When we try to describe God, and God's community, we find ourselves resorting to poetry, images, hints of explanations, and mysteries wrapped in enigmas. Join us this morning as we ponder the imponderable: community with (and in) the Living God.
This is the second sermon in a monthly series on the book of Hebrews.
