Designed for a day devoted to reclaiming inactive members, this sermon argues that the spiritual life is like a piece of equipment: unpack, read the instructions, assemble, plug in the power.
Nothing you purchase comes ready to go. You can’t buy
anything ready to use. Everything takes finishing and
finagling before you can use it. You would think that when
you have paid good money for your purchase, it would be
ready. But not so. Something else always has to be done.
