Speaker: Pastor Jacqueline Duhart

Incarnation, Proximity, Narrative, Discomfort & Hope

The word incarnate literally means “to make flesh.” How do we put flesh on the bones of our activism so that it makes a real difference. Bryan Stevenson, founder of the Equal Justice Initiative and author of Just Mercy states that there are four elements that make his social change work real and present or incarnate in the world. The four are: proximity, narrative, discomfort and hope. On this Sunday honoring the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, let us come together and explore an additional pathway for our activism. Crescendo Choir will offer us songs from the Civil Rights Movement. Our youth and children will spread poppy seeds and pennies throughout our neighborhood. This is a multi-generational worship service. All are worthy and all are welcome. Please join us.
