“Affirmations” (Numbers 6:24-26)
What is the power of speaking affirmations to one another?
This sermon invokes the Priestly Blessing in Numbers 6:24-26 against abuse, oppression, and self-doubt. It pushes further, exploring the theology of priesthood in the Protestant tradition, and offers a positive and active interpretation of the concept of “the priesthood of all believers”.
I offer great thanks to the congregation of First Presbyterian Church of Woodruff, SC, who are endlessly hospitable to every guest and stranger, myself included. They are a living benediction.
