BOND Archive Sunday Service, September 15, 2013: One man shares a story of bringing trouble on himself by “helping” a neighbor with his swimming pool in the wrong way. Another man admits to feeling sorry for a servant class in Singapore whom he heard about, where his wife spent time working. He related to them because of slavery in America. But the “poor” people can have a better attitude and be happier than the “rich.” Have a good attitude.
Jesse then reads Matthew 7: 13-14, in which Jesus says, “Enter by the narrow gate, since the road that leads to destruction is wide and spacious, and many take it; but it is a narrow gate and a hard road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” People talk about what it means. (Amid the conversation, Jesse talks with a newly homeless man on drugs who resents his parents’ shaming him.) Know and admit that you don’t know! To enter, totally surrender — don’t hold onto anything. Relax in the inner pain without reaching out to anything.
Throwback Sunday Services premiere on BOND YouTube channel Wednesdays at 4 PM US Pacific Time (7 PM ET).
