Church on Fire
In the fall of 2016, on the five month anniversary of her arrival at First Church Berkeley UCC as the new senior minister, the church burned down! (and no, it had nothing to do with the fact that in her inaugural sermon she preached about setting the church on fire metaphorically…).
That event and the events of the presidential election of 2016 spawned a short video series. Each week, two of the pastors of First Church post a new short video on where progressive Christian spirituality meets politics, culture and art. Click here to see the whole archive of shorts, from the spirituality of protest (and riot), to Christian anti-Semitism and institutional racism, to how-tos on keeping sabbath, praying the news and more.
