Sermon by Brett Landry
Quotes from the Sermon
“Our false self, having removed the roots of our identity, meaning, value and purpose from loving union with God, sinks those roots into multiple alternative soils where we seek to find our identity, meaning, value and purpose. Among such soils are our sexuality, our possessions, our status, our profession, our performances, our relationships, our woundedness, our resentments, our bitterness, our culture, our ethnicity, our place (geographical, emotional, psychological), our intellect, our education, ad infinitum. Our false self has constructed a complex nexus of soils in which the roots of our very being are grounded.” Robert Mulholland Jr.
“We need to remember that the gospel offers us an identity not predicated on something we do or something we’ve chosen, but on who he has made us – and that is wonderfully liberating.” Pete Nicholas
“You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.” St. Augustine
