This sermon continues The Good Life series and focuses in on love. Little did we know, when we planned the series, that this topic would fall in the same week that white supremacist groups rallied in Charlottesville. These events prompted an official statement from the pastors at Easter and led me to frame the topic in the face of racism.
The audio includes the reading of the statement, the congregational reading of the text, and then the sermon (it isn’t a 29 minute sermon 🙂 ).
I did not write a manuscript for this sermon, nor did I use slides, to there is nothing more to post. Below is a mind map that I sketched during the week in preparation. It is also important to note that I unintentionally cited some junk data in the sermon, was called on it, and posted a correction here the next day.
