Youth Faith and Politics

Good people of West Parish,

This past Sunday I preached on Jesus’ commandment that we love one another as he loved us, tying in a quote by Cornell West:  “Justice is what love looks like in public.”   Yes!   I just love that.   It sounds like some of you do, too.

Here is the Wall Street Journal article I mentioned, that talks about political activism in mainline Protestant churches

And here’s the essay by Omid Safi, who writes so powerfully on this idea of faith and politics.

Let me know what you think!

Meanwhile, hold onto your hats and prepare yourselves for another wonderful Sunday of worship and community, as we’ll be blessed by our youth leading the service this Sunday!    Not only will our young people lead the service, they will design the service!   Join us for a creative and celebratory Sunday!
