Description

"Squatters rights is an old custom flowing out of the ancient maxim: 'Possession is nine-tenths of the law.'...So, too, do you, my fellow sinners, possess a life of which you are not the owner. Through the years, that possession has resulted in your assumption of squatters rights—an adverse possession claiming ownership of the life you merely possess… the life you merely squat upon..." 17th Sunday after Pentecost Text: Matthew 21:33-46 Preacher: Rev. Timothy J. Swenson Director: Carl Deardoff
