Sermon delivered by Minister of Faith Development Rev. Emily Gage on October 28, 2018. Rev. Gage shares that "if your social media feed is anything like mine, there’s a series of truly frightening happenings in our world, things that seem big and insurmountable, one after another and another.... And also in my social media feed, there are glimmers of good news--seemingly tiny things that shine like little pebbles in that vast ocean of difficulty. People helping one another, people out on the streets, people voting, writing postcards, protesting, and doing the best they can to hold on to hope, to the possibility of change, to love."
