West End United Methodist Church

Open-Minded Hope

Speakers:Brazier Pierce, Mary Peacock
Topics:Sunday service

This is West End’s annual Youth Sunday when youth take on every role in the service, including all readings, music, and preaching.  The two delivering the sermon(s) are Brazier Pierce and Mary Peacock, both of whom give their own experiences related to the scripture from Luke 24:36-48, where the disciples of Jesus, having seen him crucified, are surprised when he appears to them.  Brazier and Mary each describe not only personal experiences, but offer how, in brief moments of encounter, we, too, can offer love and hope to others, whether they are friends, family, or complete strangers.   (NOTE: Reflecting the importance of the Word, the video begins with the scripture, but once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The entire service is videoed.)
