Sermon Recording

“You remember reading about the middle ages, I’m sure, where criminals could actually run to the church for sanctuary.  The church was an asylum, gave the person a fair hearing, and justice; the place where a deaf man or an outcast woman might experience grace, not just hope for it.  And I think here of our own country and how many of our ancestors fled persecution, seeking sanctuary here in this land, how many people sailed past Lady Liberty on their way to a better life:  “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.  Send these, the homeless, the tempest tossed, to me.” And I, for the life of me, cannot understand the way much of our developed world is treating people who have lost their homes and have no place left to go.  Particularly Europe, and I’m thinking here of the Syrian Refugees.”
