Given the national outcry over the events that took place this weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, we are sharing the audio recording of this morning's Prayers of the People, by the Rev. Dr. Charlene Han Powell. The text of her prayer is available at fapc.org/pray. Read Senior Pastor Scott Black Johnston's response to Charlottesville here.
Our guest preacher today is the Rev. Jessica Tate, executive director of NEXT Church, a network of leaders in the Presbyterian Church (USA) working to envision a creative, progressive future for the Church. An introduction by Associate Pastor Charlene Han Powell precedes the sermon.
This morning's guest preacher is the Rev. Dr. Pattie Kitchen, a retired pastor with the Presbyterian Church (USA) who is our visiting preacher and scholar this summer. Her two-part series, "Jesus, Buddha & Mary Oliver," concludes next Sunday, July 30.
