God’s Widening Circles

Frances S. Adeney
William A. Benfield, Jr. Professor of Evangelism and Global Mission

Ephesians 1:1-10
September 28, 2007
The sermon starts with a reading from Ephesians by student Asamoah Apenteng in his native language, Akan.

Despite scientific predictions, and despite various scenarios described in the bible, humans are blessed, in a way, by our inability to unravel and articulate the mysteries of what will happen to the universe in the future. But we keep trying. The Apostle Paul, in his letter to the church at Ephesus, wends his way does not describe what will happen in the future. But he does describe God’s intentions for the future—the “dimensions of God’s eternal purpose and grace.” Listen to the sermon. Read the sermon
