To Live a Love

To Live a Love

Jun 16, 2019

Preacher: Rev. Dr. Marcus Leathers

Series: I Love My Church


This Sunday was volunteer recognition Sunday. It was also the start of the "I Love My Church" summer series. Pastor Marcus starts with a prayer to recognize and lift up all those who volunteer for the work of the church. There follows a brief interlude for a video of recorded testimonies from Parish members and guests, testifying about the welcoming attitude of UCP toward all who enter. Pastor Marcus then reminds us that John's Gospel, and especially Chapter 13, calls us to be disciples of love -- sharing that love with each other and with all we encounter. Living that love is not easy, especially with those we see so often, yet that is what Jesus requires so that the community founded in His name can flourish and effectively spread God's Good news.
