A sermon by Nadia Bolz-Weber
Here's a Sermon by Nadia Bolz-Weber. She brings a very different perspective based on her life-experience and ministry - one I find worth delving into. You may agree or not, but it's worth engaing with her words... like a modern-day prophet.
She gave this sermon the day after the Charlottesville violence. Truth is... Racism is something many White people just don't want to address. Maybe they see no problems. And if they see no problems, then there are no problems with race, and it's just the problem of those radicals and trouble-makers.
There's more to say, but I'll let this be a good place to engage.
Lord, Save Me!
(A Sermon on Christianity and White Supremacy)
When I was in Australia recently, I was taken aback once again at how they start meetings there. I had forgotten that when there is a large gathering of people in Australia, it is a common practice to begin, not with their pledge of allegiance or their national anthem, but with what’s called, an acknowledgement of country.
