23 Feb Overcome by Love
Sunday, February 23, 2020
Rev. Molly Vetter
All month, we have been focusing on how Jesus’ words from the Sermon on the Mount give us a vision of the kind of beloved community that’s possible through divine love. (It’s 2020, and we think this is the kind of 20/20 vision we need…)
This week, we get to the end of chapter 5, where Jesus sets a high standard for us: we ought to love even our enemies. I confess that I find that complicated and difficult. (Maybe you do, too?) I look forward to sharing some of the people who inspired me to believe that Jesus really meant it when he gave these instructions. And, I look forward to conversation about how we can be a part of that kind of love; I think it just may be the only way to overcome evil, injustice, and oppression.
Grace and peace,
