Listen to Pastor Sally’s First Sermon

June 18, 2017 “When Faith Meets Reality”

Rev. Parrish is a member and and Itinerant Minister at Eden United Church of Christ in Hayward.  In addition to serving in leadership and ministerial positions at Eden, he serves on the Bay Association Executive Board, and on the Finance Committee of the Northern California Nevada Conference of the UCC.

In this Fathers’ Day sermon, Rev. Parrish examine the story of Abraham (Genesis 18:1-15) the central father figure in the Judeo-Christian tradition. He asks us to consider how we would respond to a prophecy like the one given Abraham: a promise of something completely beyond our understanding of reality.
