Fr. Ric Bowser: Marriage, Money, and Sex—Part 1

Sermon delivered on Trinity 3A, Sunday, July 6, 2014 at St. Augustine’s Anglican Church, Columbus, OH.

Lectionary texts: Genesis 24:34–38, 42–49, 58–67; Psalm 45.10-17; Romans 7.15-25a; Matthew 11.16-19, 25-30.

In our culture a battle is raging to define what marriage is and unfortunately the voice of the Church is rarely heard because frankly the mind of the Church is rather fuzzy on this matter, at least in some quarters. Today, therefore, Fr. Bowser begins a two-part sermon series on marriage, money, and sex. In today’s sermon, Fr. Bowser lays out the history of Judeo-Christian marriage and reminds us of God’s original intent—to bring a man and woman together in marriage for their mutual joy (BCP). Fr. Bowser then outlines the fundamentals of what it takes for a marriage to be a marriage. Check it out and see what you think.

There is no sermon text so listen to it all.
