Summary

The wealthy man asks Jesus what must be done to inherit eternal life. Jesus tells him he is lacking one thing. In this sermon, the idea of Richard Rohr's concept of "Falling Upward" is explored in relation to the scripture. The man must fall into the darkness, fall apart, face the part of himself that is lacking and demands trust in Jesus. Holding on to faith is what gives courage to fall, grow with trust in God.
