“They Are God’s Servants”–A Sermon For July 4th

On Sunday, July 3, 2011, I preached and celebrated Holy Eucharist at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, Lewis Center, OH (just north of Columbus). Because of the date (the day before the Fourth of July), I preached a sermon which addressed the relationship of American Christians to their national government. I titled the sermon “They Are God’s Servants,” and drew upon Romans 13:1-7 as the main text.

The sermon was recorded as an audio file, and I am making it available, at least for a time, by way of this blog post. To listen to the sermon now, or to download it as an mp3 file, click here. It runs just under 20 minutes in length.

The sermon is also archived on the “Audio” page of this blog, which you may access by clicking on the tab at the top of any page. Audio presentations are catalogued in reverse chronological order.
