Sermon: Is Anybody Hearing Good News for the Poor?

Pastor Lanny Peters tells us the poor were the first group of people Jesus mentioned when he exclaimed his purpose. The Bible contains more than 300 verses on the poor, social justice, and God's deep concern for both.

About Voices from the Edge:
Cutting Edge. Leading Edge. Marginal Edge. Bleeding Edge. 
This Lenten season, as God calls us to journey more deeply into ourselves and into God’s world, we will listen for Voices from the Edge. These are the voices that we sometimes ignore, or do not pause long enough to hear.  Sometimes we miss hearing them because they are so far ahead of us; sometimes because they are different from us; and sometimes because what they are calling us to might require more courage than we feel we can muster.
