Sermon

The scripture for the morning exhorts us to “keep watch” in anticipation of the return of the Son of Man (Mark 13:24-37). But how will Jesus return? In her sermon, Senior Minister Molly Baskette suggests that progressive Christians don’t focus on Judgment Day. We fell in love with the baby who grew into a man who taught, loved, healed and shepherded. And it can be exhausting to keep watch all the time. Sleep is important! Perhaps we are missing the certainty of now. Perhaps “watching” is not “worrying” but holding on to relentless hope.
