5th Sunday After Pentecost, 6/28/2015: 2 SAMUEL 1:1, 17-27 | Mark 5:21-43
Desperate for Healing (pdf sermon manuscript)
This was again an important Sunday for churches across America. We came to church for the second Sunday with Mother Emanuel heavy on our hearts, and only a few days earlier the Supreme Court made Marriage Equality the law of the land. On a day that combined celebration with mourning, the theme of our texts brought us to the the connection between desperation, grief, and healing.
