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.”

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.”

“In every moment, God is mending what is from the depths of what is. Tragic or magic, momentous or mundane, every moment is a choice to join in harmony or sit idlily by. Be ready. The light of the lamp of your heart lit enlightens the world and guides us in this darkness.”
