Podcast: The sermon by Rev. Jeanne Randall-Bodman presented on Sunday, September 1, 2019

“It’s hard to know, hard to see, the unwelcome that some people feel and are experiencing all around us, all the time. It’s hard to see what we ourselves are not experiencing. Most of the time we don’t even notice that we are swimming in a sea of privilege, set up for us by a culture and a political system that we didn’t create… The most obvious, ubiquitous, important realities are often the ones that are hardest to see, much less talk about.”

Podcast: The sermon by Rev. Jeanne Randall-Bodman presented on Sunday, August 18, 2019

“Clearly, we too need stories of the great cloud of witnesses to keep our heads up and our eyes on Jesus. One of the things I believe we are called to do as church is to offer ourselves to each other, to share and witness to each other’s lives in both joy and suffering, to encourage each other when we are discouraged, to sit with each other in distress, to rejoice with each other in every joy, to create safe space so that everyone is always welcome.”

“Jesus sends us back to where we came from to spread the good news of what God has done for us, and to be encouragement to the other humans running whatever race life has given them… and to be a witness against a system that is set up to serve some and dispossess others; Jesus names us disciples.”
