A Pentecost Sermon
On Pentecost Sunday, the last Sunday of Asian-American month, I was asked by my dear friend Kirk Davis to preach at his African-American church. In my message, I tied the Asian and Black narratives of exclusion to the Spirit’s inclusive work at Pentecost. It's a work that joined all ethnic groups together in the Spirit’s continuing work of restoring voice, body, and place.
I wrote a post to briefly highlight the joining of Asian and Black stories in solidarity here. Included is a video of my sermon and a curated booklist to help us engage, feel, and pray. Click here.
Your partnership with Kingdom Rice helps provide for the new class, book, and teaching, which in turn enables us to examine our own lenses, speak new narratives of the Kingdom that replace “white-normal” with impartiality, and stand in solidarity with those who “can’t breathe.”
To Jesus our high priest during this pandemic season. Love, Steve
