How do you know it’s bad?

Sermon delivered on 27 June 2021


Lamentations 3: 22-33
Psalm 130
2 Corinthians 8:7-15
Mark 5: 21-43

Long ago in a village in China lived an old man and his only son. They were very poor. They were shack dwellers but they had a little piece of land. He was very proud of his son. He would look after his father when his strength was gone. Their most precious possession was an old horse. He pulled the plough—and the cart that took crops to market. One day the horse ran away. When the villagers heard about it, they came to share the family’s bad luck. They said “Oh! This is bad—very bad.”
