Isaiah 58:1-9a, 1 Corinthians 2:1-12, and Matthew 5:13-20
This sermon is very specific to my little community. It is not a theoretical treatise on church and politics, just some preaching trying to order what we are going through and laying the foundation for healthy relationships at church. To that end, here are the two references I made to stories told by guests of Krista Tippett on onbeing.org. She has done a tremendous amount of work to create safe spaces to talk about hard topics. I love it, love it, love it.
