Why We Do What We Do
Carissa Spruill, a youth at HMPC, played a beautiful musical interlude between the reading of scripture. Rev. Ben then delved into a central question for all Christians: Why do we do what we do? At the heart of our call from God is a perplexing challenge — to proclaim the Word of God and then deal with the ramifications. Some times we fail to see that we need God because of our successes (or paths to success) and other times we fear what may come if we do proclaim the Word. This vacillation forms the heart of this homily as it invites us into the heart of the Christian life, where all are welcome.
