C36: The Eighth Sunday after Pentecost, Year C (2022)

Jim Somerville

“Does it spark joy?” That’s what the star of “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo” wants to know about our possessions, and Jesus might agree. In this Sunday’s Gospel lesson he breaks the news that one’s life does not consist in the abundance of one’s possessions. So, what does one’s life consist of, and how do we develop the right kind of relationship to things? All this and more in Jim Somerville’s sermon called “Sparking Joy,” from Luke 12:13-21.
