Easter... "Resurrecting the Way of Jesus"

This past Sunday was Easter, and my sermon was very much inspired by and based on Robin Meyers' book, The Underground Church: Reclaiming the Subversive Way of Jesus.

I titled my sermon "Resurrecting the Way of Jesus".

The reading that I shared before the sermon was straight out of the book, and it focused on Matthew 13:33, "Heaven's imperial rule is like leaven that a woman took and concealed in three measures of flour until it was all leavened." According to Meyers, this "may be the most subversive parable in the New Testament".

The sermon itself builds on this, in a way.  You can listen to my sermon at this link.
