  1. Marcia, what a brilliant sermon, written in a way that gives me some needed insight, even a framework, in which to try to accept the mystery while not completely understanding it. Also, I appreciate the point you make at the beginning, about a person who already knows a lot but who continues to ask more questions. The knowing and unknowing is/seems endless. Thank you.

      Thank you for your comment, Kathy. I like how you put it: “the knowing and unknowing is/seems endless.” Sounds like the wisdom of a true mystic!

    Thanks so much for preaching that sermon, Marcia, and for making it available here. The four of us from Fuquay-Varina PC who attended “Growing Together” found it both inspiring and challenging. And thanks too for your special contribution to the liturgy that morning.
    Thanks as well for the excellent class on reformed theology, past and present. I brushed up on my knowledge of Calvin and his contemporaries a couple of years ago when I mentioned to our pastors that we should take advantage of the study opportunity the five-hundredth anniversary of Calvin’s birth afforded. Naturally, I ended up leading the study. Your presentation certainly added some good insights and I particularly enjoyed hearing of today’s directions in theology growing from those strong roots.
    As one Calvin fan to another, I’d suggest you might want to check out the contemporary Calvin portrait available as a poster through the “Church Store” on the PC(USA) web site. The artist said that she reviewed all the Calvin portraits available but then tried to incorporate a more pastoral image in her work, inspired by Calvin’s motto . I know my copy adds something special to my den.
