Naaman Meets the Fourth of July

Proper 9
July 5th, 2010

by The Rev. Richard E. Helmer


What do we mean by "God bless America?" Is it just a patriotic sound bite or something more? This is where the history takes a back seat and the sermon begins for me this morning, and where we come face-to-face with our ancient Scriptural texts written in anything but a democratic milieu. They have something profound to tell us about why we invoke a divine blessing on our country this day - and it may not be for the reasons we think.
