Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

TEACHING [Past posts below]
This Sunday I did make a teaching video- I guess the theme would be diversity [And the glory of God]-
And how it was confirmed by some of the interactions I had with my friends.
I explained on the video how this fit with the readings/verses for this week.
The main theme for the readings- was the glory of God- and how God’s people share in this glory.
Yes- I taught this before- and the 2 verses I shared from John’s gospel pretty much summed it up.
But that was the main theme that tied the readings together- and that's what I try and teach when you see me teach from the actual Catholic Mass readings on most Sundays.
I simply felt it would be helpful- over time- to teach not only from the bible chapters - or books you see me write studies on-
But also from the Sunday readings.
Though many Protestants- or non denominational churches also have their own sermons on Sunday-
Which is fine-
I simply felt I could do the most good- by teaching from the verses that most Christians/Catholics would be reading on any given Sunday.
And the way the Catholic church does have the same bible readings- world wide- on every Sunday- then yes-
It might benefit all Christians more- if I cover those verses.
Ok- I hope that explained some why you see me focus on the Mass readings for most Sunday sermons.
I did add my past teachings below on the key chapters- [Somes ites see here https://ccoutreach87.webstarts.com/blog/post/sunday-sermon-text ]
