Shameless Self Promotion- Post Inaugural Sermon Edition

I preached at Christ United Methodist Church this past Sunday (January 22, 2017), which was the first Sunday after President Trump's inauguration and the Women's Marches that occurred all over the world the following day. The lectionary epistle (1 Corinthians 1:10-18) sees Paul calling out the Corinthian church for letting their disagreements divide them instead of letting their unity in Christ be the most important thing about them. I felt that God was speaking to our society in this very tense political moment through this 2,000 year old pastoral letter, and this sermon was the result.

You can listen to the audio on Christ UMC's sermon page.

Feedback, whether positive or constructive, is always welcome. Just keep it respectful and no attacking one another. After all, we're all God's children.

I thought this sermon was 100% right on target. It certainly reminded me to "put a guard on my mouth" and on my heart. Thanks for putting today's anxiety in perspective. I am a child of God and we are all children of God!
