Video from All Saints Church, Pasadena, 12.1.2019
“Jesus showed us by how he lived and died and lived again on the other side of death that nothing is too big, too much, too hard for God, that human dignity and flourishing are God’s dream for us no matter under what oppressive systems we find ourselves. The Jesus who allied himself with the poor and disenfranchised by becoming poor and disenfranchised will not abandon us to a world that does not love us, fears us and seeks to harm us. Rather Jesus stands with us as we remake the world that is our heritage, our sacred trust, as we rediscover its poetry and the poetry inside of each of us.”
Sermon by Wil Gafney at All Saints Church, Pasadena, on Sunday, December 1, 2019. Readings: Genesis 1:1-5, Psalm 8, Romans 8:18-25, and Matthew 24:32-44.
