Address to First Year Seminarians, Candler School of Theology at Emory

Insignificant Ministries
“Insignificant Ministries” Sermon by Rev. Brian Combs, July 2020 The mania over measurable outcomes, apparently, was present back when Matthew and Luke were penning their Gospels.  Unable to restrain their revisionist pens, they both succumbed to the seduction of success, the allure of bigness.  In Mark’s account, Jesus says the kingdom of God is like...
