Sunday Sermon, The Rev. C. Alfred Loua: "When We Falter: Lessons in Human Frailty"

In today’s sermon we encounter dramatic moments in the lives of several key biblical figures: from the death of Uzzah, steps from King David, after touching the Ark of the Covenant; to the beheading of John the Baptist, after which Herod “probably never slept well again.” Major life events “are the best occasions to learn who God is and who we are,” preaches Father Loua. Watch his sermon to hear him use these stories to underscore our values of stewardship, social justice, and integrity. The scriptures are 2 Samuel 6:1–5, 12b–19; Psalm 24; Ephesians 1:3–14 and Mark 6:14–29.
