Apocalypse! As much as I want to say "relax, it's not the end of the world"... well... you know... At the very least, it is the end of a version of the world we thought we knew. This is not the first time humanity has faced this type of apocalypse, however. And the word itself suggests that there is much to be learned even from these uncertain times.

Our "The Realm of God is Like This..." series this week explores the Parable of the Bridesmaids from Matthew 25:1-13. What kind of party is Jesus talking about, and what does it mean to be ready, to be faithful and wise at the end of the world?

This week our sermon series “The Realm of God is Like This…” takes a trip back to the roots of the Jewish understanding of the realm of God. From the very beginning of the Hebrew people, being part of the Reign of God has been held in contrast to the Reign of the World,” exemplified by the Empire of Egypt and its ruler, Pharaoh. When Jesus’ parables imagine the Reign of God as a new way of being, a new human community, it’s always in contrast to the old way, the way of Egypt and Pharaoh, the way of domination and slavery.

Our “guest preacher” via youtube, Austin Channing Brown, invites us to reconsider how the Kingdom of Pharaoh lives on in communities and our hearts today. Austin is the author of I'm Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness and producer and host of The Next Question, a video web series on race and justice. This is a sermon she preached at a church in Arizona in 2016. 

For better and for worse, this sermon is preached primarily to an American audience in a similar-but-different context than we are living in in Canada. This means that we have some work to do in crossing that distance and making the connections from the American voice and situation into our own. Fortunately, y’all are smart people and we Canadians are well-practiced at this kind of transcontinental translation. :)
