Talking and Walking with an Open Ear

Dr. Walter Brueggemann preaching on Psalm 40 and John 1:29-42

Sermon audio only, no text. Some helpful quotes:

"In front of us is an expectation that God will do enough miracles to heal the world. And in between we are the people with open ears, who expect to hear something new from God. That will give us something new to talk about. And will invite us to a bold new walk in the world."

"Between remembered miracles and hoped for miracles, what do you do in the meantime? This Psalm is an excellent example of what to do in the meantime."

"The conversation for the baptized is about Godís newness, faithfulness, and steadfast love. We are to bear testimony to our kids and our neighbors about the transformations we observe all around us."
