Sermon  "All About Angels" 


Sermon excerpt: 

Even for as much as we can know about angels, there’s much more that we can’t. Not quite humans, not quite God, they don’t fit into any of the categories we use to describe things, and so they remain a mystery that we can’t quite solve.

But I think that’s the whole point, actually. God – who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, three in one and one in three – is always a mystery; so why would God’s angels, the messengers of God, be any less mysterious?
