Yield not to temptation

Good afternoon,
I developed this sermon from Parker Palmer’s The Active Life.
I particularly liked his approach to temptation coming from the Latin temptare meaning to try or test something.
It hanges the notion of “sin” quite a bit in my opinion, though I didn’t develop that part at all.
Also the temptation to be inadequate – very prominent in many people’s thinking and not just “put-upon” women either!

  1. Hi Robert,I have thought about your comments. My Trinity Sunday sermon shows that I am starting from quite a different place. I don’t think "eternal wrath" is what God is on about.
