Sermon: November 12, 2017 – Mother Maxine

Mother Maxine Barnett, Curate at The Church of St. Jude (Episcopal) in Wantagh, NY talks about Dr. Seuss’ book “Oh, the Places You Go.” In his book, he writes about “The Waiting Place.” This is a place where people go to simply sit and wait for something to happen. He says this is not a place for us to go. In today’s Gospel, Jesus tells us that we have to keep the light burning in preparation for the arrival of the bridegroom. We cannot just sit and wait. We must be sure to use the gifts of time, talent and treasure that God has given us.
