Pub[lic] Theology #3–Values: Disagreeing Well & Learning to Live with Each Other

How do we deal with political disagreements with our friends and family? What prompts the strong emotions when we disagree with those close to us? How do we maintain relationships with intense disagreement?

This presentation is intended to lay out some major things in the background of our political disagreements, and then talk about some actions we can take to maintain and strengthen our relationships.

Unfortunately the camera had both a hard time focusing, and a shorter than needed battery charge. Bear with us and we’ll get better at these things.

10:30 AM Service. The sequence hymn and gospel reading are included. To go directly to the sermon, start at 3:18.

The Great Litany, 2018

Once a year on the first Sunday of Lent, we chant The Great Litany at St. Joseph of Arimathea. It is the oldest piece of liturgy in the English language, and I personally love it. I thought it was particularly appropriate this year:

*Yes, I know that Christ the King Sunday is not an official title in the Book of Common Prayer. I also know that the Collect is completely in keeping with the title, so I use it, because I appreciate the opportunity to preach on Christ’s kingship.
