Last year The Age of Individualism was published by The New York Times. Though it began “IN the future, it seems, there will be only one “ism” — Individualism — and its rule will never end. As for religion, it shall decline;…” the article goes on to argue “that the human desire for community and authority cannot be permanently buried.”
As we’ve studied Deuteronomy in our current sermon series at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC, we’ve seen how community is at the heart of the structure for daily life that God puts in place for his people. God ordained feasts, festivals, judges, priests, prophets, and eventually kings for their daily life, so the community wouldn’t fracture. So it is with us: God wants us to live together in community, and he designed us to live in community. But living in community calls for great vulnerability. Listen to the whole sermon here.
