Podcast: The sermon by Rev. Jeanne Randall-Bodman presented on Sunday, November 3, 2019

“Jesus calls us to a community where God’s generosity is mirrored by every member, where all are fed, and sustained and offered mercy. Everyone is welcomed… Jesus calls the church to more than acting differently or seeing the world differently, he calls us almost into a new existence in which God’s generosity benefits the downtrodden; the generosity creates a culture formed and sustained by the mercy of God.”

Podcast: The sermon by KMUCC member Dave Parker presented on Sunday, August 25, 2019

“Last fall, Cindy and I took an incredible trip to South Africa… Later in December, we took another vacation to Charleston, South Carolina… At some point this past year I mentioned to Jeannie that we had visited both places; South Africa with its history of racism, apartheid, and the ugly history of the ruling white minority; and Charleston where the first shots of the Civil War were fired at Fort Sumpter, and slavery was alive in our country, front and center. The comparison between the two countries and their history of racism were very obvious and apparent.”
