Sermon for Trinity 12

Monday, September 12th, 2011

The church year and the secular calendar are on an apparent collision course today. In the world, today is the tenth anniversary of the biggest news story of our generation, 9/11. In the church, today is the Twelfth Sunday after Trinity, the healing of the deaf mute. These two items could be easily combined, preaching on how, as God healed the deaf mute, so He brings healing to a world bruised by Terrorism. However, since the anniversary of 9/11 merits its own service, I invite you to join us for Vespers at 3:30 today to apply the Word of God to human suffering. This morning, I’d like to stick with the appointed reading, the healing of the deaf mute, and see how it illuminates the words of the Psalmist, “O Lord, open Thou my lips; and my mouth will short forth Thy praise” (51:15).
