“Remembering”—Brookmeade Congregational UCC, Aug. 11, 2019, Nashville, TN
Thesis: Remembering or Memory grounds us as we act in faith (the reality of what our memories give us evidence for) in the kin-dom of God

Readings for the liturgical calendar today:  
Isaiah 1:1, 10-20; Heb11:1

Words of Meditations: 
from Toni Morrison's book Beloved:
 "Love either is or it ain't; Thin love ain't love at all."
Sermon:  I’m speaking from the space of a person with limitations…in case you were doubting that...

A Story about Rock Climbing:
