Descending the Social Ladder and Climbing Jacob’s Ladder, a St. Paul’s Coney Island Sermon 9/7/1980

Here are two scans of this sermon, one typed way back when (img0688) and the other, the handwritten manuscript (img069). It was on 8.5inch X13 inch lined paper, which made it difficult to scan.

Some mistakes in the typed version (other than spelling): middle of page 4: “each of us tries to hide it, but we feel that although people won’t let on, we are pretty great.”

page 5: “where God’s gracious power wakes us” not “makes” us.

It’s “enlightened self-interest” of course.
