Pastor Pat Bailey, Insights: Kneeling
The title to my sermon last Sunday was “Have You Been on Your Knees Lately?” The posture of bowing or kneeling is one that reflects an attitude of heart. It can be seen as a posture of submission, as when we kneel before a king or before the circumstances of life that sometimes drive us to our knees. Yet, the spiritual invitation of kneeling is one of choice and trust and wisdom and freedom.
