“This sermon is an invitation to a sacred revolt against the tyranny of being told we are one by the powers and principalities who want to be sure we never know the real truth of our oneness.
We can only stop being tools in this deadly project if we begin to live out of the oneness that is real, that is life, that is love.
Oneness is something we cannot NOT be–we are deeply connected to each other. Our oneness is in our blood and bones.
This primal oneness–that comes from our created nature–is ravaged every day by the ways we harm each other, by the ways we are not safe together, by the ways we are untrustworthy, by the ways we deny that we are all deeply traumatized by violence.
We cannot break this spell without finding a way to be healed from the impacts of counterfeit oneness, and to find our way back to our true created oneness that Jesus prayed for us to know all those centuries ago.”
