Statement Against Systemic Racial Violence

We believe that brown and black lives matter. In the face of ongoing persecution and lynching, God stands in solidarity with them. As Christians, we sing with Mary that our “Lord has brought down the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly” (Luke 1:52). As followers of Jesus, a man of color executed by the state, we stand with God in solidarity with those who are oppressed. We stand troubled and emboldened by the Spirit, not just to cry out for justice but also to work for systemic change. God loves all; love requires us to practice justice so that we can live in a world where all can flourish without fear.

Sermons

Be Troubled (by the Spirit)!

Note: What I wrote below and what I said aren’t quite the same. Read if you want, but listen too. The Spirit troubled the waters, and new life erupted forth. New life is eruption. It isn’t peaceful, it isn’t calm. It breaks through. Seeds crack as a shoot bursts forth. Dirt is shoved aside. Human life is born amidst pain and blood and water. We are troubled, and we live in troubled times, and maybe that trouble is the Spirit,…
