Sermon for Sunday, November 21, 2021: “The Age of Overwhelmedness”
Revelation 4B – 8
The British theologian David Ford has called our age this. He says we have been exposed, largely thanks to Media, to so much tragedy, Heartbreak, and despair that we are overwhelmed. I think he’s right and yet, when you think about the context of John’s writing the book of Revelation in HIS overwhelmedness he begins with shouts of praise. What is that all about?
