What did you not hear this past Sunday?

Larry James has a dynamite post asking what you heard in Sunday morning's sermon. Here's a sample of Larry's questions:

Was there any word about "the poor"?
Did you hear anything about the health of the community or the nation?
Did you hear a word about "community" or was the morning line more about individualism?
Did anyone mention the concerns of "peace" in this time of terrible war and violence?
Did your experience direct your energy more toward the next life or did you find yourself eager to move out into your world to make a difference in your here and now?

Larry works full-time among the poor in Dallas, Texas, and undestands what Jesus meant when he spoke of the importance of remembering "the least of these." Preachers, I strongly recommend you read Larry's whole post.

Fortunately for me my pastor hit almost all of those Sunday AM and really challenged us to go and work for God wherever we go.

Good challenge for us all though to hit everyweek when we teach, be it Sunday School like me or preach as others do.
