5-28-2017 Free Climbing Faithful

Sermon: “Free Climbing Faithful”

Focus: Inclusive

Reflection: The Family United

We hear again from Paul and again it may sound strident and uncompromising. But, the crux of the matter is that we are all united together through Jesus Christ, and through him we become one family together. This is the Good News! All—that is everyone! All humanity is part of this inheritance, and there is no difference of creed, color, race: we are all God’s children. As you prepare today, give thanks to God for this world wide family, and pray for those who do not realize the gift that is theirs for the taking.
