August 29, 2021 Worship Service: We the People

As both a national and global society today, tensions run disturbingly and continually near the boiling point. Chaos and turmoil seem to abound. As polarized factions, we remain at war with one another, gridlocked in a stalemate that can feel completely insurmountable. The consequences have been, and continue to be, staggering and too often inconceivable.  

How do we move forward? How do we make headway, not only as a community, but as a nation? As the human race? Can we communicate effectively with those who do not think or believe as we do? With those whose viewpoints we deem deplorable or just plain wrong? With those whose actions have seemingly harmed many?

Conversations with friends are often easy and need little translation. Conversations with those who oppose us are much harder, and they demand more of us. They require that we rise above ourselves, or sink beneath the weight of the never ending cycle of an “us vs. them” mentality. Is this even possible? Do we stand united, or fall divided?
