delivered by Pastor Marisa on November 12, 2017
Pastor Marisa explores the challenge God has called us to throughout the bible history to live rightly and do justice in a world with very different values. The Hebrew Bible prophets got persecuted and Jesus drew increasing threat to his freedom and his life for amplifying this message. We are still at risk today when we call ourselves and our communities to care for the poor and oppressed, the marginalized and the stranger; to be good stewards of God’s magnificent creation. What does it mean to seek justice in a world of violence and war? We will consider this as we recognize and honor veterans who have fought in our name and suffered this Veterans Day weekend.
