Sermon for Proper 8
The 6th Sunday after Pentecost
Scriptures: Wisdom of Solomon 1:13-15, 2:23-24 and Psalm 30 • 2 Corinthians 8:7-15 • Mark 5:21-43
Remember that my sermons tend to vary somewhat between services, both because I try to keep the 8 AM sermon slightly shorter, and because I preach without a manuscript.

10:30 AM service. To go directly to the sermon, start at 9:57.
