“I want to talk about how we bridge the chasms that divide us,” the Rev. Buzz Thomas said. “We must move beyond our tribes. Now, there’s nothing wrong with our tribes … (but) the Constitution of the United States does not begin with ‘We the tribe.’ That vision is too small for our republic. We are people, many tribes.”
Thomas continued his Week Two sermon series with “If God Be For Us…” The readings were John 8:2-11 and Romans 8:31.
“I want to convince you this morning that you have theological permission to do what America needs you to do, that God wants us to make common cause with our neighbor … that despite our theological and political differences, we can be one nation,” he said.
