24: Hate

April 2, 2020 David Wigger

24: Hate

The COVID-19 Pandemic has made our “Into the Wilderness” unit a lot more real, and most of us are hunkered down at home. Since we were unable to have in-person Sunday School, we attempted a virtual class this past week and asked families to send in voice memos for the podcast…

We continue our Lenten unit, where we are wandering the wilderness with Jesus on the way to Easter. The theme each week corresponds to the theme of a chapter in the book: Jesus and the Disinherited by Howard Thurman. This week: Chapter 4 – Hate. Here Thurman offers a spiritual argument against hatred:

“Hatred destroys finally the core of the life of the hater. While it lasts, burning in white heat, its effect seems positive and dynamic. But at last it turns to ash, for it guarantees a final isolation from one’s fellows. … Jesus rejected hatred. It was not because he lacked the vitality or the strength. It was not because he lacked the incentive. Jesus rejected hatred because he saw that hatred meant death to the mind, death to the spirit, death to communion with his Father. He affirmed life; and hatred was the great denial.”

“Sincerity in human relations is equal to, and the same as, sincerity to God.”

(The Bible story this week comes from The Children of God Storybook Bible, by Archbishop Desmond Tutu)

22: Fear

22: Fear

Our “Into the Wilderness” unit got a lot more real this week.

The COVID-19 Pandemic has brought a lot of new fear and anxiety to our community and to our world. and most of us our hunkered down at home. Since we were unable to have in perosn Sunday School, we sent out At-Home Lesson Plans for families, and this episode follows one family’s discussion…

We continue our Lenten unit, where we are wandering the wilderness with Jesus on the way to Easter. The theme each week corresponds to the theme of a chapter in the book: Jesus and the Disinherited by Howard Thurman. This week: Chapter 2 – Fear. Here Thurman offers a theological answer to the fear of the disinherited:

“The awareness of being a child of God tends to stabilize the ego and results in a new courage, fearlessness, and power. I have seen it happen again and again.”
