“The lamp of God has not yet gone out.”
A sermon offered for the 2nd Sunday After the Epiphany, January 17, 2021, at St. Simon Peter Episcopal Church, Pell City, Alabama.
Today, in the midst of turmoil and uncertainty, we hear the story of the calling of Samuel as the Prophet of the Lord. Tomorrow, in the midst of turmoil and uncertainty, we will celebrate the prophetic witness of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“In this moment, we have got to listen and respond to God’s call. To be faithful in this moment, we need the courage of Samuel to speak God’s prophetic Word and the trust in God of Eli to hear it.”
Principal Text: 1 Samuel 3:1-10(11-20)
