recorded sermons: Comfort the Afflicted

Once a month i have been preaching, speaking in a small lovely Unitarian Universalist pulpit in Palatka Florida, and they have been recording them.

Two weeks ago, i gave this sermon in the aftermath of Harambe’s death……………………… One week ago, it was the aftermath of a devastating rape and miscarriage of justice……… Yesterday, we discovered the horrific homophobic rampage of carnage at a sanctuary of dance in Orlando.  Yes, sanctuary!  the place where you are safe and free to be who you are.  If i was in the pulpit yesterday, i would have delivered a very different sermon – yet as we mourn, as we grieve, let us ask….even in our grieving, are you comfortable? are you afflicted?

what is your sanctuary?  is everyone welcome?

HOW DO YOU COMFORT THE AFFLICTED? HOW COMFORTABLE ARE YOU?

remember – you are loved. all ways.
