The author of the book we're reading,
America's Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege, and a Bridge to a New America
, is our guest preacher this Sunday! Rev. Jim Wallis will preach the word as we continue our 6-week anti-racism worship series. In this classic parable of discipleship, Jesus offers a way to live among each other, to live as children of God with our fellow children of God. When we are confronted with the challenge of dismantling racism, we must remember "dismantling" is an action verb, and the work of the sheep in this parable is no mere platitude, attitude, or well wishes, but true action in the world. What anti-racism action have you witnessed in your lifetime? What is your next step? This Sunday's worship service is an extended experience and Brunch and Hennepin Kids for LYFE programming have both been extended, too, so please come and have an excellent experience this week!
For the Children and the Adults in Their Lives:
We all need help, sometimes. When we do, sometimes people notice and come to our aid. Other times, we must ask and hope they will be there for us. Which do you experience the most? When you see someone in need of help, you have a choice to decide whether you will come to their aid or not. When was a time you helped someone? Are there times you wish you'd helped someone else? May you know that God has given you great strength to be a helper, all your days!
