Rather than writing my own meditation today, I’m posting a link to a sermon on Psalm 46 preached by Rev. Stephen Donovan at Escondido United Reformed Church in Escondido, CA. He preached “Facing the Fearsome” on the last evening of 2012, when many people felt anxious about the coming year.
Rev. Donovan’s message is available at the Sermon Audio website. He reads the scripture text from the English Standard Version. Here’s a link to the sermon: “Facing the Fearsome.”
More than six months after he preached this sermon, it still seems appropriate for whatever issues and anxieties you and I face today.
