Sixth Sunday After Pentecost
FREEDOM (July 16, 2017) —
These words come to us like a healing balm of hope. They wash over us like the very waters of baptism that signaled our acceptance into Christ’s body. They remind us that we are made one in the body of Christ, so that there Is no longer slave or free, Gentile or Jew, male or female, us or them. We are one and we can remain united as one, not because of what we do, but because of what God has done for us in Christ.
