B38: The Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost, Year B (2015)

Jim Somerville

Dr. Jim Somerville, Pastor of Richmond’s First Baptist Church and Co-Founder of A Sermon for Every Sunday, preaches a sermon on this week’s Gospel lesson from John 6:51-58. He begins by describing a scene from the movie “Cocoon,” in which three old men find “a pool in which old age is washed away.” While the thought of eternal youth is tempting to many, Somerville points out that eternal life is what we really want.
