From Marben’s Sermon
On this All Saints Sunday, we remember the long line of faithful ones who have come before us. As we honor and treasure them, let us act, in the command of Jesus that we live unwrapped lives.
- Jesus calls us to be unwrapped from the sin that bound us up from living the full lives that God intended for us.
- Jesus calls us to be unwrapped from the fear, the sadness, the loneliness and the grief caused by life and death that keeps us from the joy that God has for us.
-Jesus calls us to unwrap the potential in our lives.
Voting is one the ways we can unwrap our potential. We can use our unwrapped vote to remove from office those who have enable this corrupt, deceitful and un-American, American President.
For when we unwrap the vote, and use it to elect Andrew Gillum and Stacey Abrams, as Governors in Florida and Georgia. We do so not because they are black candidates but because they are the best candidates.
When we unwrap the vote, we do it not only to honor those who died to give us the right to vote, but also to defeat people such as the man in Georgia who schemed and plotted from the office of Secretary of State to keep our votes wrapped up.
