The People on the Bus

Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton

 

Have you ever climbed aboard the bus or a streetcar-or walked through the doors of the subway-and felt you had suddenly entered some brave new world, some strange experience that was already well underway before you got on? A bus route and a subway line are like an unfolding and ongoing conversation, every stop an inflection point as people exit and enter, exit and enter. The subway rolls into a station and suddenly the conversation changes. The mix is different. Public transit can be a great metaphor for life, especially as people come and go. But what do we make of our fellow travellers? Just what are our ties and obligations to "the people on the bus"?

 

In faith,
Shawn
