The “Love Your Neighbour” discussion group invites you! The group who read James Cones’ The Cross and the Lynching Tree with Pastor Larson wants to continue discussion about racism in American society. All are welcome. The group is committed to caring, honest, and safe conversation on issues of race, seeking how more faithfully we as Christian individuals and as church can bring our part to God’s intended rule of reconciling love to neighbor and world. The book basis for our conversations over the summer is Michael Eric Dyson’s, Tears We Cannot Stop, A Sermon to White America. It is available on Amazon in softback and Kindle format. All is casual; snacks and beverages to share are welcomed.

“Jesus is Lord.” Do we say that? Do you want to say it with me? “Jesus is Lord!.” Do you say that because I asked you to? Would you say it if I did not? Would you say it in a conversation with another? Maybe you would say that with some qualifications? Maybe explain what “Lord” means these days? Probably say it in a way that distinguishes you from others? Want to say it again? “Jesus is Lord.” Continue reading
