Sermon on the Myth of Redemptive Violence, part one, 30 April 2017

Readings

Micah 4: 1-4

Matthew 5:38 – 6:4

In this morning’s sermon, the first of a series, Rev. Peter Bluett began to explore what the American theologian, activist and writer, Walter Wink, called “the Myth of Redemptive Violence.” In the sermon he looked at the Babylonian creation myth,  the Enûma Eliš, highlighting the violent underpinnings of the birth of the cosmos in this myth, and exploring the structure of societies which use violence as a tool for bringing peace and order.
