Homily: Inch Into The Light

During Lent, Oconee Street United Methodist Church will be focused around the theme of “Listen.” Sunday services will be built around this theme, allowing attendees an opportunity to listen and reflect on God. In lieu of a traditional sermon, Pastor Joe Gunby will offer a shorter “Homily,” implementing practices of Lectio Divina, a traditional Benedictine practice of scriptural reading, meditation and prayer intended to promote communion with God and to increase the knowledge of God’s Word.


Sometimes we struggle with prayer because we feel like we cannot get in touch with God. However, the Spirit of God is inside us. We just need to find the peace to talk to God within ourselves.
