Recalculating...
November 13, 2016 - Rev. Penny Nixon

In this post-election sermon, Penny asks us to go deeper. Since we pray every week, "Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven," what will this look like given our new reality?

Note: Due to technical difficulties, the sound quality is slightly diminished.

Read this before watching Penny's sermon:
PSALM 15
Lord, who can be trusted with power,
and who may act in your place?
Those with a passion for justice,
who speak the truth from their hearts;
who have let go of selfish interests
and grown beyond their own lives;
who see the wretched as their family
and the poor as their flesh and blood.
They alone are impartial
and worthy of the people's trust.
Their compassion lights up the whole earth,
and their kindness endures forever.
(translated by Stephen Mitchell)

Luke 17:20-21
