Dear Friends of Emmanuel Church,
Underlying this week’s sermon is the idea of our inter-connectedness. Ezekiel dealt with this in the following passage:
The word of the Lord came to me: What do you mean by repeating this proverb concerning the land of Israel, ‘The parents have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge’? As I live, says the Lord God, this proverb shall no more be used by you in Israel. Know that all lives are mine; the life of the parent as well as the life of the child is mine: it is only the person who sins that shall die. –Ezekiel 18:1-4.
Here is the sermon: Sweetening Sour Grapes
