The challenges of our times have echoes from the 1950’s and 1960’s with McCarthyism’s red baiting of worker, racial, homophobic and global efforts and leading into the Civil Rights Movement. Today, we hear parallel kinds of rhetoric highlighted in the January 6th breach of the Capital, challenges to voter’s rights, and the insistent calls and demands of anti-racism to address the very real divisions and built injustices too many have been too blind to see for too long.
Preston Mears, a member of our church, will share how salvation for him is the ongoing work of growing inside of ourselves at the same time we join hands together to address the very real challenges to all people. His own experience includes the challenges of life and death, the murder of seminary classmate Jonathan Daniels in Haynesville, Alabama. He will be assisted by fellow worship committee member Bonnie Gallion who brings her own experience and commitments to the service.
