Questions from the Outside: What If I Don't Believe?
So this sermon may have been a bit more personal. After an appearance on WJCT's First Coast Connect, I (Adam) was reflecting on what it may feel like for those who aren't folks who are engaged with the church. What is it like to hear a pastor say that believing that Roe vs. Wade being overturned is something to be celebrated and to think otherwise is "wicked."
Well, I think it gives folks real reason not to want to be a part of the church. And, like Pilate, it gives folks a reason to wash their hands of the whole enterprise.
So we tackle this issue, untangling civic religion, the issues of celebrating a Supreme Court decision, and more.
