Sat upon, Spat on, Ratted on (2015.06.14 Sermon Audio)
June 15th, 2015 | John Chandler
Chris Morton started us into the Sermon on the Mount with one of Jesus’ most famous teachings — the Beatitudes.
Quotes and Links mentioned:
- Let’s consider something new: Yuccies. Young Urban Creatives. In a nutshell, a slice of Generation Y, borne of suburban comfort, indoctrinated with the transcendent power of education, and infected by the conviction that not only do we deserve to pursue our dreams; we should profit from them.
I am the yuccie. And it sounds sort of, well, yucky.
Getting rich quick would be great. But getting rich quick and preserving creative autonomy? That’s the yuccie dream. (David Infante, The hipster is dead, and you might not like who comes next)
- The sad truth is that many people around us, and especially people in their teens and young adulthood, drift into a life in which being thin and correctly shaped, having “glorious” hair, appearing youthful, and so forth, are the only terms of blessedness or woe for their existence.
So we must see from our heart that:
Blessed are the physically repulsive,
Blessed are those who smell bad,
The twisted, misshapen, deformed,
The too big, too little, too loud,
The bald, the fat, and the old—
For they are all riotously celebrated in the party of Jesus.
(Dallas Willard, The Divine Conspiracy)
