A Wilderness of Imagination

Scott C. Williamson
Robert H. Walkup Professor of Theological Ethics

February 27, 2009
Mark 1:9-15

Sometimes along the straight and narrow way that Mark describes, we get lost in the wilderness. At times we find ourselves meandering in the wilderness, unable to find our bearings, or get any forward momentum along the way. At times we find ourselves at a crossroads, unable to resolve which path to take. Listen to the sermon. Read the sermon in PDF.

Dean K. Thompson
President and Professor of Ministry

Philippians 4:10-13 (NRSV)
Hebrews 11:1-16; 32-40; 12:1-2 (KJV)

This sermon was preached during the season of Lent and on World Day of Prayer. Indeed, the heart of the sermon is a prayer - the so-called “Serenity Prayer.”

O God, give us
Serenity to accept what cannot be changed,
Courage to change what should be changed,
And wisdom to distinguish the one from the other. Amen.
