Sermon: November 5, 2017 – Father Christopher

Father Christopher Hofer, Rector at The Church of St. Jude (Episcopal) in Wantagh, NY explains that we feel blessed when good things happen to us such as a clean bill of health, winning a prize, getting a great job or any number of other positive occurrences. We would not consider ourselves blessed if we were diagnosed with a disease, lost a job, were bullied or experienced any other negative situations. But, we can find several references in the Bible where being blessed is associated with things such as being poor, meek, or persecuted. We can be sure that even in times of trouble, God never leaves us and we are always blessed.
