I Saw A New Philadelphia

April 25, 2016

Here is a sermon from Anders Edstrom, who wrapped up his time at BSM with a word from Revelation 21:1-6 entitled, “I Saw the New Philadelphia.”  In this text, John of Patmos shares a vision for a city free from suffering at last, after years of violence and injustice. Through Jesus, God made a home in the city of Jerusalem and continues to reside in the midst of our cities today, calling us to active hope, rather than resigned cynicism.
