Rev. Cari returned to Crossroads for a “Stump the Preacher” topic, in which the requester had asked, “What does the Hebrew Bible have to say about sacrificial love? What does Jesus say about it?” This sermon is her response.
Referring to both Amos 5:18-24 and John 21:15-19, Rev. Cari takes a bit of a unique run at this topic, tying in COVID-weariness as she aims for an invitation to integrity of worship and ministry… which might just involve some discomfort in these times.
She pulls in some of the work of Fr. Richard Rohr, in his understanding of and invitation to transformation.
