This week I begin a Summer Sermon Series that promises to be exciting.
“Should Christians Be Good Citizens?” is our question.
I am going to make 3 cases:
- Christians should be the best types of citizens: invested, loyal, trustworthy, sacrificing, etc.
- Christians should be troublemakers who interrogate, subvert, and undermine the injustices.
- It is a bad question: we are not citizens of this world system at all but of a different kingdom.
The big theme is “What is our relationship to power?”
Are we supposed to be ‘in charge’ ?
Are we the minority report?
Are we the band-aid on the wounds?
Are we loyal to this world’s systems ?
If you are interested, you can join in the conversation at 10am Sunday mornings (online or in person) through http://www.VermontHillsUMC.org
I will also be posting recap videos and the sermon notes here on my blog if that works better for you.
