We want a King


This was an interesting title for a sermon based on recent political events.  Samuel was called to be God's prophet at a time when people did what they wanted.  They wanted a King.  The scripture reading uses 'take' more frequently than 'serve' in describing the role of a king. Sometimes what we need is not what we want.  We live in perilous and polarizing times.  Some wish to be like others...like other nations...but integrity is to be a follower of God.  Silence is complicity.
