“If we are to love, it is not some namby-pamby thing of nice sentimental thoughts. It is being willing to take the blame for the ones whom you engage with. You could easily say, then, that the one who was without sin, Jesus, was blamed by the authorities, those people in power, for the manners and outcastedness of those with whom he walked alongside.” –from Rev.

“When I love my God, I love you – and you – and you – and you out there who cannot even hear me. Through this utter selflessness faith grows. That’s the hope, anyway, and it grows even without clear-cut good and evil. Do you know if you are rich, or if you are poor? By whose standards? Only you can figure that out, and how you answer will depend on your answer to the first question: what do you love when you love your God?” –from sermon “Your Faith is growing abundantly (for the Love of God!), 3 November 2013″

This was an awesome experience. To see so many people from all walks of life believing strongly in the same thing was moving. The UCC was represented from Massachusetts Conference, Oregon UCC, a Boston UCC, a couple from Grand Rapid, Michigan UCC and United Church of Christ of Annapolis and by, I am sure other uncounted UCC members. Estimates of the number of people taking part range from 310,000 to 600,000.
