MOUNTAINS OF MATTHEW

Clare Amos

Sermon preached at the Commissioning of Readers in the Diocese of Southwark, Southwark Cathedral, 26th January 2008

In the life, ministry death and resurrection of Jesus Christ God is with us. A point made at the beginning of Matthew's Gospel and repeated at the very end - the last words of the resurrected Jesus as he bids his disciples farewell from the mountain-top are, "Remember I am with you always to the end of the age." The whole of his Gospel is held together by this truth which undergirds and gives meaning to all else: that God is with us.

Clare reflects upon our opportunities to stand for a moment on a metaphorical mountain-top (as in Matthew) to get our bearings once again before we plunge back into the hustle of our everyday lives. What can we discover as we survey the view from Matthew’s mountains?
