11:15am Sermon, The Rev. Dr. Mark Bozzuti-Jones: "'No Is An Answer' to Oppression"
In his sermon on Pride Sunday, the Rev. Dr. Mark Bozzuti-Jones looks to Jesus’ example of saying no in powerful ways — a reminder to us that the God we meet in Christ says no to any political system that seeks to punish others because they’re different. “We have to say no to unjust policies, say no to our government, and even at times say no to our church when what is taught is not love, is not justice, and is not respect.” The readings are 2 Kings 2:1-2, 6-14; Galatians 5:1, 13-25; and Luke 9:51-62.
