“The Time Machine,” the 10/18/2020 sermon by Pastor Matt Sturtevant. Scripture reference: 1 Samuel 2:1–10. This is part of the “A Narrative Journey” series that follows the Narrative Lectionary from September through the end of May 2021.
The special music performed by Amelia Clark in this video is composed by Undine Smith Moore (1904-1989), who is often called “the dean of Black women composers.” We believe that we are called as Christians to create space for the voices of those who are marginalized, and we are honored to share her work as part of our worship today. You are invited to learn more about Undine Smith Moore HERE.
