Reading MATTHEW chapter 27 -- Abandonment

Recently, I discovered the sermons of my college pastor online. While at Georgetown University (1991-95), I, along with 10-20 other Georgetown friends, attended Fourth Presbyterian Church, a 10-15 minute drive from campus through the manicured estates of Northwest Washington, DC to the leafy suburban neighborhood of Bethesda in Maryland.

We drank in the deep wisdom of our college director, Chuck Jacob (now a senior pastor at Knox Presbyterian in Ann Arbor, MI) and of Dr. Rob Norris on Sunday mornings (and at times, classes he taught during the week days).

When I attended, the US Vice-President Dan Quayle and his family (and security detail), my Georgetown professor former UN Ambassador Jeanne Kirkpatrick, and many other well-known names from politics, academia and media, also attended. Dr. Norris' predecessor was then-chaplain of the US Senate, Dr. Richard Halverson. 

All to say, if all of these accomplished people came Sunday after Sunday and benefited from Dr. Norris' sermons, maybe we too can find intellectual as well as spiritual nourishment from these talks?

It does not take long before one is taken in by the profundity and the humor -- not to mention, the accent! -- of Dr. Norris's exposition.

Khmer Democrat,

When you have trouble to find article to post in KI, can you please at least find educational photos, scenery that would be benefit and relevant to our Khmer community and people instead of posting this Christian sermon and its translation for KI Media site.

There are churches, Christian religion gatherings and the devoted Christians who have already been doing this job relentlessly to serve people everywhere in societies.

I respect your persistent with the practice of your choice of religion, however I ask you in return to respect the majority readers who sent countless messages expressing disapproval of this posting.
Let us all exercise our democratic sentiment to reflect our moral, ethical and value in this forum in response to the priceless effort of the KI founder/s who establish this forum for us in the name of DEMOCRACY.

Yeay Tep
