Paul’s letter to the Galatians states that “there is neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female; for we are all one in Christ Jesus”. Pastor Mark notes that this is counter to the current trend in society towards increasing tribalism; we are drawing the lines more sharply between liberals and conservatives; citizens, legal immigrants, land undocumented immigrants; rural versus urban, rich versus poor, and on and on. Mark asserts that these lines or divisions are simply made up; they exist only in our minds, and that we need to avoid these artificial distinctions as we follow the example set by Jesus. The sermon text is Galatians 3:26-28. The ensuing congregational discussion is included in the podcast.
