This past Sunday I preached a sermon based upon this amazing painting by one of my youth.  I found this young theological artist’s work inspiring.  On our confirmation retreat the youth were challenged to paint “the Dream of God” and after reflecting upon the Sermon on the Mount this is what came out…the introduction of the Jesus Operating System.

In the sermon I tell the story of the painting.  Hope you enjoy it.  LISTEN HERE (right click & save as to download)

To be Christian is to be human in a new way – to be fully human –  and it requires a decision to give oneself to the way of Jesus.  This decision is something only the individual can make.  It can’t be done for us and it costs all of us.  It requires us to take our own existence as seriously as God does.
