West End United Methodist Church


Speakers:Nancy Parker
Topics:Sunday service

This is the second in a sermon series based on 1 Corinthians 13’s treatise on love and titled, “Love, Always.”  Today’s reading is from 1 Cor. 12, Paul’s familiar comparison of the church to the member of the human body.  The word, “kindness,” originated from the way one would treat others in one’s family, kin, and thus the sermon title, “KINdness.”  Rev. Nancy gives an example of Fr. Greg Boyle whose work in Los Angeles through a number of decades draws in those society often views as dispensable and treats them as valued, as part of the body.  Nancy gives other examples of people who extend kindness not just to other people, but to the environment and to things around us, living out a KINdness with people and things around us, reminding us that our health and well-being are connected to the health and well-being of people and things around us.  (NOTE: The video begins with the Children’s Moment, but once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The entire service is videoed.)
