Summary
Dr. Louis Zbinden, pastor of First Presbyterian Church, San Antonio, TX, and an alumnus of Union Theological Seminary, Richmond, Va., delivers two sermons. The first, "A daunting invitation, " based on Joshua 24:14-28 and Luke 9:18-27, is about the meaning of Jesus' invitation to follow him. Dr. Zbinden believes that the most difficult part of a journey is not its beginning, but its continuing. The invitation implies a plan on the part of the one who offers the invitation, provides a perspective on history that points to the future, and is centered on a person, not an idea. He concludes that the Christian life is not about human goodness, but goodness imparted to persons by Jesus Christ. The second sermon, "Little things count, " based on II Kings 5:1-14 and Luke 10:l-ll, l7-24, is about Naaman the Syrian who was healed in the Jordan River at the direction of the prophet Elisha. Dr. Zbinden believes this story reveals both a typical human desire for complex answers to human ills and an unwillingness to obey God and accept simple prescriptions. It illustrates God's habit of working through unlikely persons and methods to contradict death and provide humanity a cure for its ills
