The Sermon on the Mount

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

This Sunday begins a five week series on The Sermon on the Mount as recorded in Matthew's Gospel (chapter 5).   We begin with the readings in 5:1-12 which are called The Beatitudes.    These are powerful words.   They speak to us of God's blessings.    Still, we often don't hear what Jesus is really saying.   Too often, we hear the words as something that we have to obtain or do.
