First Presbyterian Church of San Anselmo
Choosing God's Voice
Jan 14, 2018
The Rev. Douglas Olds
1 Samuel 3:1-9, John 1:43-51: This sermon by guest preacher Douglas Olds explores how our relationship with God requires communication to make it authentically human. Without communication, there is no relationship. Looking at two readings about the calling by name of God to God’s followers, we learn that we are called by name—and hear God’s voice–in our conscience. God is lord of the conscience, our Presbyterian confessions state. Our sense of rightness and justice can direct us, give us a path in life. God wants us to follow our conscience that is based on knowing the voice of God.
