We live in a world of dividing walls built on fear and labeling. Jesus breaks down the dividing walls and brings us near. Bringing us near brings in us a change of heart and mind. We no longer see our neighbors as “them” or “those people.” Instead, we see them as an extension of our faith family- as “us.”

I look on all the world as my parish; thus far I mean, that, in whatever part of it I am, I judge it meet, right, and my bounden duty, to declare unto all that are willing to hear, the glad tidings of salvation. – John Wesley, journal entry on June 11, 1739

I’m excited to now offer mp3’s of my Sunday messages. A huge thank you to Leon and my brothers and sisters at Trinity United Methodist Church, Sarasota for all their help in making this possible. If you’re ever in Sarasota, please drop by for worship Sundays at 9am or 10:30am, or drop by during the week for a chat or small group. You and those you love are always welcome.
