“Too ‘Woke’ for Jesus’ Followers” by The Rev. Kaji Douša

November 3rd,2019 Categories: Sunday Sermon, The Rev. Douša's Sermons

We bless our persecutors when we represent our truths. When they see us, we are a blessing to them because we learn, together.
Yes, we must love our neighbors as ourselves. We must love our enemies. Jesus is clear on this.
But name them as neighbors. Name them as enemies. Name our lovers, too. And our friends.
Just know the difference.
It’s way too easy to ignore the poor when we won’t let them speak sharply.
Rather than sushing them…
Maybe we listen there first.
Since that Jesus of Nazareth was a homeless immigrant.
And they wanted him quiet, too.
