11:15am Sermon, The Rev. Winnie Varghese: "The Promise of Hope"
“There is a hope in us. We know what the story of America is supposed to be and we rest when we see it. We take it in greedily, we believe again like the fishermen who follow…today, like back then, much of that following is in resistance to what is proclaimed as truth around us.”
Drawing connections between the film "Just Mercy," which tells the story of Bryan Stevenson and the Equal Justice Initiative, and the Gospel, the Rev. Winnie Varghese marvels on how the promise of hope is enough to feel a sense of purpose and even change the world. The Scriptures are Isaiah 9:1-4; 1 Corinthians 1:10-18; and Matthew 4:12-23.
