In the morning’s story, Jesus invites his followers to “take up their crosses and follow him” (Mark 8:27-35). Minister of Community Life Rachel Bauman begins with the premise that to take this difficult road is not the price we must pay to be loved or to feel like we belong. Although we wish, rightfully so, for ease, love, freedom, and joy, we can’t have those things fully if they are not available to all. No one should suffer alone and our response to others’ suffering can take many forms—like our decision to be a Sanctuary church and stand up for the rights of our immigrant brothers and sisters.
