Sermon Script for September 27th 1 May God’s love and peace be with you. Do you know where is the kingdom of God? Does anyone know where is the kingdom of God? Do you think we are getting closer to the kingdom of God? Where is the promised land? Does anyone know? There was a song that children used to sing when I was a small boy. It was this: 우리의 소원은 통일, 꿈에도 소원은 통일, 정성을 다해서 통일, 통일을 이루자. It means: we dream of the reunification of two Koreas. I think of the reconciliation among us even in my dreams. Let’s work together, let’s work for peace. When I was young, I used to hear this song in public advertisements on TV and radio. And I learned and sang this song at school. But, this song is no longer sung. Even this song is no longer sung by children. I don’t think children learn this song at school today. I have never heard of this song at least for the last ten years. One of the reasons is people don’t think it is possible. People don’t think the reunitifcation is possible. To be honest, people don’t think it is economically beneficial. About ten years ago, the reason that children sang this song was not because the reunification would bring on economic benefits. It was just because we are one family. Now people don’t say that we have to be reunited. People don’t say that we are one family. Where is the kingdom of God? Are we getting closer to the kingdom of God? Mr. Barak Obama became the president of this country in 2009, the first African-American president of this country. Many people thought that the United States of America was opening a new era. But today, we are surprised hearing the experience of African-Americans. Two weeks ago, we have lost an admired judge, Ruth Bader Ginsburgh. I heard many people are in sorrow because of her passing. And we know that her vacancy has become another reason of conflict and political clash. Where is the kingdom of God? Is reconciliation possible among people? To make the world better, one of the things that we do is to develop technology. I do believe that technicians are admirable people. They are co-creating the world with our God. They are creators. Thanks to technology, now we see more. We see further. Now we...

Sermon Script 1 May God’s love and peace be with you. I would like to begin with a question. What was the very first thing that you thought of as you got up this morning? What came up first in your mind as you got up this morning? You could have thought of what you thought last night. You could have thought of your children. You could have thought of your church as it is Sunday. If you ask me the same question, almost every morning, I used to get up thinking of sermon. Right after my alarm goes off, the first thing that comes up in my mind is sermon. Yes, I do have a bit of pressure in my mind. And I tend to be driven by the pressure. I think I want to do well. So, once one service is over, I start thinking about the next service. Actually, I already know the scripture for the next Sunday. When I have spare time, I browse the internet and the book to find inspiring stories to be used for the next service. I am off on Monday. So, I do laundry. I clean the house. I sort out things. Even though I receive emails, I try to push them away. Please excuse me. But, pushing away the pressure about sermon is always hard. So, I find myself sitting on my desk to work on the sermon on Monday night. I know it is not healthy. And I always feel that I don’t have enough time. And I always feel busy. But I know this. I have never run out of time. The truth is, my mind is busy. As my mind is busy, I feel I am running out of time.How about you? What are you driven by? What were you driven by last week? A couple of days ago, I read an interesting article.It was written by a dentist who has a clinic in New York City. After the lockdown was lifted, he finally started working at his clinic again. But he found something unusual. He found something very unusual. He says he has been seeing so many patients coming in because of tooth fracture. He says he has seen more tooth fractures in the last six weeks than the last six years. He asked other colleagues if they have the same experience, and they said yes. One of the reasons that people have tooth fracture is this. As many people are working at home now, they tend to have poorer posture than they work in their office. That can cause tooth fracture during the night. So,...
