Ted Marcy gave the message on Matthew 5: 43-48 in which Jesus tells us to “love your enemies”. Who is your enemy? How do you “love” an enemy? What would this even look like? Why would you do this?
Towards the end of the message, he shows a video of an encounter during a rally between Trump supporters and Black Lives Matter. You can view this video in this link to a NYT opinion piece written by Arthur Brooks, who also wrote the book, “Love Your Enemies: How decent people can save America from a culture of contempt” that informed Ted’s message.
Pastor Kim’s sermon is based on Matthew 5: 21-37, part of which is the following: ” if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.”
Please excuse the first few moments of the video. My iPhone was refusing to engage the video at the start of her sermon.
