The Call to Radical Inclusion (Sun. 23 Feb, 2020 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton.

 

In this fragmented, fragmenting world, when people are reporting increasing feelings of loneliness and isolation, as our politics and public discourse seem to grow more polarized with each passing day, it is a radical act to make a move greater toward inclusion—to seek to make room for the Other, the outcast, that perceived opponent who understands the world in a very different way than you. And, yet, that is I believe, what our faith asks of us. And it is, I believe, what this present moment needs from us. This Sunday, my sermon will explore what this means for us as a congregation and what this may mean for our country as we grapple with questions of justice and equity, healing and reconciliation. To honour Black History Month, the choir will sing Moses Hogan’s setting of the spiritual “Good News, Chariot's a Comin’” and will end the service with Harry Belafonte’s “Turn the World Around.”

During the service, we will also receive an encouraging update about our real estate situation!

Following coffee hour, all are invited to attend our annual Budget Meeting in Sunderland Hall. We will consider a shift to our fiscal year and vote on our proposed budget. We will also have time for conversation about our latest developments in our real estate journey. Lunch will be available.

I look forward to seeing you all soon!

In faith and love,
Shawn
