Sermon

In the scripture, Jesus gives some advice about what to do when someone offends you. He suggests talking directly first, before anything else. In preparing for the counter protest a couple of weeks ago in Berkeley, participants were even taught not to directly engage those on the “other side.” But agitation is still needed to name the truth and expose harmful secrets in order to save lives, so says Senior Minister Molly Baskette. Perhaps the most powerful thing we can do is offer God’s forgiving love face to face, to seek reconciliation.
