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?


remember – you are loved. all ways.
