Seventh Sunday of Easter 2014 - The Reverend Geoffrey Chapman

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

Throughout most of the 20th century, after the first and second world wars and the horrifying revelations of the Holocaust and the possibility of nuclear war, many Christians saw God as very small. Surely if God could have stopped these wars, stopped the holocaust, or stopped the creation of the atomic bomb, God would have. By comparison, humanity seemed so great and powerful. So capable of massive destruction and universal power. 

But in the 21st century, we are humbled. Humbled by our inability to prevent war from happening again, humbled by technology that seems to control us almost more than we control it, humbled by our inability to live in a sustainable way in our environment. If God became small in the 20th century, we have become small in the 21st century. This is a sermon about this strange and new theological dilemma.
