Liturgy that Matters - April 25, 2021 - John 10:11-18
Themes: Jesus proclaims himself as the "good shepherd." How does that differ from the "hired hand?" What clues are we given for recognizing those who intend to stay close even when risk comes about - or those who are ready to abandon the flock at the first sign of threat? This and reflections on the ongoing consequences of theologies of sacrifice and how in this moment that often looks like white people turning "tragic events into a-ha moments for enlightenment."
This week's sermon commentary writer is Minister Candace Simpson.
