Galileo Church

Quirky church for spiritual refugees. Who would Jesus love?

Our missional priorities:
1. We do justice for LGBTQ+ humans.
2. We do kindness for people with mental illness and in emotional distress, and celebrate neurodiversity.
3. We do beauty for our God-Who-Is-Beautiful.
4. We do real relationship, no bullshit, ever.

Soul Repair: Miracle Enough for Me

"Here's mud in your eye." That's what she -- our regular contributor here -- would have called this sermon. But Joel Brown is classier than that. So he respects this story about Jesus from John 9:1-41 with a great deal of gravitas. It is, after all, about the possibility that just when Jesus is helping one blind guy see, he can strike a whole bunch more people blind -- the miracle of healing working backwards for those without eyes to see. Ouch.

At the top of the service, we listened to a piece of Anne Lamott's reading on NPR's This American Life, episode 104, in which she says she's seen "miracle enough for me." You can listen here. 

Thanks, Joel, for good words and good news.
