August 8, 2021
Rev. Dr. Stephen Butler Murray, Minister
American Morality

The very nature of "freedom" is at question in America today. Do we uphold ideas of freedom from persecution, or do we celebrate freedom to behave however we wish? In the midst of a global pandemic, does the government promote freedom by mandating masks, or is this instead a violation of our freedoms? This murkiness threatens the stability of our nation. This sermon will explore how we understand the difference between right and wrong and the collective character of our nation.
