First Things First; sermon by Carla Bailey, Aug. 21

Radical, compassion-filled love: that’s what Christians share. “Jesus was a practitioner of ‘first things first’ ministry, and his first thing wasn’t the clear and ringing defiance of religious rigidity. That came later—after he had done the more important thing, which was caring for a suffering, pained, marginalized, largely invisible person.” Listen now to Carla’s sermon from Sunday, Aug. 21.
