Pastor Megan preaches on the fourth and final Sunday of our Advent “Revolutionary Songs” worship series. She reflects on overhearing someone else’s good news – both biblical and contemporary exiles – and joining our voices with Revolutionary Mama Maria’s song (Magnificat – Luke 1.46-55), singing ourselves home to God’s irresistible shalom vision.

Pastor Megan opens our Advent season of Revolutionary Songs with a sermon reflecting on how singing has sustained movements of just peace across time and place. Encounter the story of Bernice Johnson Reagon, founder of the Freedom Singers during the Civil Rights Movement and Sweet Honey in the Rock since then.
Pastor Megan preaches the final in our Just Peace series, reflecting on Jesus’ teaching to pray for and love our enemies, and telling a story of the prayerful communing of tea-drinking in Israel-Palestine.
Pastor Amy continues our series on Just Peace with a sermon that highlights the community-ist vision of the early church and challenges us to communal and individual discernment of how we share resources. We are particularly challenged to think about our heritage as settlers on indigenous lands and how relationship accompanied by reparations might be a way toward a Just Peace ‘that all might live in dignity.’
