October 17, 2021 – 21st Sunday after Pentecost
“And what do we mean when we speak of the Lordship of Christ? Is this to say that the Holy One is the ultimate author of vengeance and retribution? Of demeaning power and humiliation?
No, a thousand times, NO! The Lordship of Christ speaks of the coming end of all lording, of the day when the cords of subjugation will unravel. ” – Ken Sehested, Prayer and Politiks.
Listen as Pastor Melanie Vaughn-West reflects on what it might mean to be a servant in a kin-dom where there are no lords and there is no hierarchy and where losing in the eyes of others just might mean liberation in the eyes of our own souls. Melanie’s sermon is followed by a song by Lee Bains and a prayer by Leslie Withers.
