Message What Animals Teach Us Rev. John Song
Part 1) “Unutterably Themselves”
This is a 2 Part Sermon Series on “What Animals Teach Us”. We’ll begin this Sunday with Part 1) “Unutterably Themselves”, and the following Sunday, we’ll conclude with Part 2) “Wisdom of the Body”.
The 2nd century Greek Bishop, St. Irenaeus, exclaimed, “Glory of God is human fully alive.” Animals have something to teach us about how to become alive in God’s playground of creation.
