Dear Folks -
One well-known piece of advice from the teachings of Jesus is this: "Don't worry about tomorrow." He uses more words than this, of course, but that is the essence of the teaching. We could probably shorten it simply to - "Don't worry."
If we could give up being anxious, that would be heaven on earth for us, wouldn't it. It would be a bit of Nirvana. That's what I called the talk I gave in Ordinary Life this week -
Moving Toward Nirvana;
Betting on God's Love
I begin by responding to comments I got in response to last week's teaching. One of these comments was, "I really enjoyed your talk today but I didn't understand it." I amplify on why I consider that such a compliment and also make comments about Rob Bell's controversial new book, "Love Wins."
The text I used to speak from is below. The audio version is slightly different.
