Lately, I have been trying to find a different church because the one I would attend does not have much of a community spirit. The lasy 2 churches I went to had a nice atmosphere but for some reason, the sermons seem to have been pointless. It is as if the priest just repeated what was in the sermon and paraphrased it. I left thinking ‘what was the moral of the story’ and totally clueless as to what message God had in the story
Another priest seems to think that the sacraments do nothing unless we actively seek change in our life. I can see his point. I always thought action should be taken. For example, wishing I could loose weight is usless unless I scedhule time in the gym. So in a certain way, I see his point. But in another way… should we not accept God’s will?
For example, if someone has a disease that can not be cured, annointing the sick is a good idea. But at the end of the day, does God’s will not prevail? If God does not see it fit to heal the person, the person can receive the sacrament over and over again, but yet still have the disease?
So in a nutshell are sermon’s suppose to have a point?
