Sermon

In this passage from the Book of John (16:19–24) Jesus places sorrow right alongside joy. Senior Minister Molly Baskette suggests that it is easy to see what is broken around us and want to fix that in order to have our joy. Instead, what if joy were like a deep underground reservoir of water that we could always be connected to. Rather than something we demand from God, joy is something that God does in us and for us. We are floating in it.
