“Staying in the Box” : A Homily on Acts 14:8-18
Christians experience the adoration and accolades that accompany acts, deeds, and words we'd call divine. When that happens, when we are showered with praise, we have to make a split-second decision as to how we'll respond. Do we accept the accolades as proof of our hard work and tenacity or do we give thanks to God? This may seem easy to answer, but in life, it is harder to give God the glory. In this homily, Rev. Ben explores what happens when we are forced to make that split decision and how God keeps showing up because of and despite our decisions.
