(I preached this sermon on Sunday, Sept 13, 2020 in response to the Gospel reading — Matthew 18:21–35 — where Jesus tells Peter to offer forgiveness 70 times 7 times. You can see the entire service or skip to the sermon by visiting www.ststephenlc.org)
Chris, a man in his 50’s, called his pastor. “My father is dying.” He said. “Oh, I’m sorry to hear that Chris. What can I do for you?” “I don’t know. But I needed to call. I need to talk,” He said. “Ok. Then talk to me, I’ll listen” came back the response from the pastor.
