Listen to Pastor Sally’s First Sermon

July 17, 2016 “Caught Between Two Worlds”

This Sunday, Pastor Tracy shared her thoughts on the series of violent, hate-fueled attacks that have occurred almost daily since the tragedy in Orlando. She suggests that the common element is always people who are caught between a comfortable world in which they have been endowed with power over others — often by a simple accident of birth — and a newer world in which the “others” are threatening that power. She traces this pattern as far back as the story of Cornelius The Centurion, and as recently as her everyday interactions with parishioners. The way out is simple and obvious, but very hard for those of us with privilege to truly embrace.
