Supporting Refugees is a Theological Issue

Per requests from folks yesterday, here are video and audio versions of my sermon on Luke 6:1-26. We cannot stand by and say the actions barring refugees from our country are purely political. They are profoundly spiritual and theological. Stand with me.

Where is the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Beloved Community in 2017?

Forgive my arrogant assumption but I am prouder of the sermon I delivered yesterday, in celebration of The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., than I am of the hundreds of sermons I delivered prior to yesterday. The Luke 4:14-30 text was so appropriate for today. Please give it a listen and feel free to share it with others.

Do we say what people want to hear? Does our faith guide our politics or are our politics guided by our faith? Do we substitute contentment and satisfaction for the challenge of the gospel?
