Is there no justice?

September 20th, 2017

This week the Rev. Dr. Jim Somerville, Pastor of Richmond's First Baptist Church and co-founder of A Sermon for Every Sunday, preaches a sermon from Matthew 20:1-16 called, "Is There No Justice?" He begins: "Often when I am counseling with people I will be reminded of a story that seems to fit their situation, and without even asking I will reach up and take it down off the shelf like a country doctor reaching for a bottle of pills, hoping that it will help them see their situation differently or understand it better. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t but I can’t seem to keep myself from reaching for a story. And neither could Jesus."

This sermon is from A Sermon for Every Sunday, a series of lectionary-based video sermons designed for use in worship, Bible study, small groups, Sunday school classes or for individual use.
