Finding Joy in Jubilee

Finding Joy Sermon Series

October 21st, 2018

Twenty-Second Sunday After Pentecost.

Pastor Paul is preaching.

Leviticus 25:8-13

You perhaps noticed a theme developing thus far in this series, the realization that joy is not obtained through accidental encounter but rather through intentional pursuit.

In the early years of the nation of Israel, God would remind His people of the need to pursue joy by instituting the “Year of Jubilee”, a time in which people were liberated, property was restored, and life was intentionally simplified.  Perhaps there’s something of value in this tradition even for Americans today, namely that joy can be found just as sufficient in the act of giving things up and simplifying our lives as it is by adding to them.

Have you created space for joy in your day to day?  Let’s consider together.
