The First Congregational United Church of Christ (DeWitt, Iowa) Podcast

Episode 17: Be the Church: Embrace Diversity

July 26, 2020

This week on the podcast: We start with our worship service for July 26, 2020, continuing our Be the Church series with a sermon on embracing diversity. Then, Pastor Chris talks a little bit about the kinds of diversity that we don't embrace: the ideas and behaviors that deny the full humanity of our friends and neighbors.

 

Worship starts at about 1:43. Scripture is at about 4:29, sermon at about 7:33, and prayer at around 19:09. Pastor Chris's additional segment is at about 22:25. There are also some important announcements at about 30:23.

 

We are back for in-person services at 9:30 on Sunday morning! We meet in the parking lot over AM radio. Sit in your car and listen, or bring a lawn chair and portable radio (and please wear a mask and keep a healthy distance). You can also find our prerecorded video services on our website: uccdewitt.org.

 

The scripture reading this week was Acts 8:26-40. That link will take you to the NRSV version of the reading.

 

Our music includes Funkorama and Pride, both by Kevin MacLeod.
