IN WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY
I Love Jesus But Hate Saviors
About our Guest Preacher: Rev. Carrington Moore

"I Love Jesus But Hate Saviors" will radically investigate White Saviorism within American Culture. Guest Preacher, Rev. Carrington Moore of the Mass Council of Churches (and more) will interrogate the allusion of White Saviorism and how it pervades our culture, history, education and politics; and stands as an enemy of Black Liberation and the manifestation of the Kin-dom of God.    

Prayer for This Sunday:
We recognize, O Lord, the sorrow, the sadness and the pain in our midst. And like the psalmist, we pray that people who sow in tears will reap with shouts of joy. We pray that those who sow in sickness will reap with health and wellness. We pray that those who sow in unemployment will reap in satisfying and fulfilling work. We pray that those who sow in barrenness will reap with the glad giggles of infants. We pray that those who sow in disillusionment will reap in clarity. We pray that those who sow in hatred and anger and disgust will reap in love and peace and community. May we say, also with the psalmist, “The Lord has done great things for us, and we rejoiced.”
