Hashtag Me Too

The #MeToo Movement

It is a cultural moment. A movement. Almost every day seems to bring new revelations and accusations in the media. Calling the #MeToo Movement "welcome," New Testament scholar Ann Jervis writes that it provides yet another example of "Sin's insidious work." What is that work? To spoil every one of God's good gifts. 

"God’s beautiful gift of sex, meant for joy, for creativity, for mutual affirmation becomes instead a force of destruction," she observes.

“Behold, I Am Coming Soon” - A Sermon Series on the Apocalypse

“Behold, I Am Coming Soon” - A Sermon Series on the Apocalypse

The Revelation to John, also known as the Apocalypse, is one of the most misunderstood works in the entire canon of Scripture. In recent times it’s often been viewed as a breeding ground for fundamentalism, end-time fanaticism, and sectarian retreat from or hatred of the world. This suspicion of Revelation would have surprised our Christian ancestors.
