Rev. Sean offers a prayer for integrating courageous love and Beloved Community into our daily lives.
Rev. Sean reads "There Is No Easier Way" by Elizabeth Nguyen.
Rev. Gretchen preaches about how Tough Love Saves Us All as we work for liberation and to dismantle racism. She explains Beloved Community and guides us in exploring how courageous love requires us to act with a systemic and collective lens.
Rev. Gretchen draws on the story of Job to illustrate how bearing witness to another without fixing or minimizing is an act of courageous love.
Rev. Gretchen explores what we really mean when we say "love." She invites us to engage with the concept of love more deeply because "when we understand love not just as a word, but as an experience and a commitment, as a way of orienting our lives and the source of our hope, as a vision for the world as it could be, it will make all the difference. We will make all the difference in all the smallest corners of our lives, and across the whole of life itself."
