Claiming the Call 02-09-2020

“Claiming the Call,” the 2/9/2020 sermon by Rev. Claire Chadwick, guest preacher on the occasion of Martha Stearns Marshall Sunday. Begins with reading of John 12:1-11. Sermon begins at 1:54.

Claire is a licensed American Baptist pastor and has recently started a graduate program at Central Theological Seminary, working toward a Masters in Counseling. In addition to schooling, she has been involved in anti-poverty campaigns with the Kairos Center, out of Union Theological Seminary, for over 10 years. She is currently a community organizer with the Kansas Poor People’s Campaign and Kansas Interfaith Action.

Martha Stearns Marshall was an 18th-century Baptist woman who preached alongside her husband.
