God’s Widening Circle

May 6, 2019

Given on confirmation Sunday (an already very full service ) this message is brief.  Even, so it clearly relates an important development in the early church.  Specifically the realization that God's redeeming power had a much farther reach than people had imagined.  The circle which encompassed God's people was being redrawn and was being pushed out farther than people had thought possible.  Even in our own day, we ought to be careful of our assumptions and our tendency to limit God's grace.
