Sunday, June 10, 2018 | Ruth: Poverty, Privilege, & the Presence of God | Rev. Michelle Matthews preaches on Ruth 2. The story of Ruth and the character of Naomi cannot be easily categorized, contained, and defined. Listen as Michelle suggests that what lies at the heart of our brokenness and our privilege is our tendency towards walling things off, dividing our lives into categories, and living and thinking dualistically. Sarah Williamson shares her faith testimony of her experience as a missionary kid and her work helping to advocate for refugee communities with Protect the People. The band leads us in "All the Poor and Powerless" and the 18th century hymn by Charles Wesley, "Jesus, Lover of My Soul".
