Annual Meeting

Dave Gibbons preached tonight at the opening worship service for the Annual Meeting of the Covenant. At one point he referenced the commands to love the Lord with all your heart and to love your neighbor as yourself and he highlighted the provocative way Jesus answered the question of “who is my neighbor”. And as he spoke about the church’s call to love those on the fringes, to love those who are not like us, he confessed the easy inclination toward homogeneity; the default setting of like attracting like. And he concluded: “We in the church have pimped the second commandment.”
