A sermon by Rev. Norm Shirk at Second Congregational UCC / First Presbyterian PCUSA Church of Rockford, Illinois

“The people you don’t like and would rather never see again—those are the people you need to come toward and say ‘I know God is in you. I know God is at work in you. And I know that you have a gift that I don’t have, but that we all need. Please share it with us.’” – Rev. Norm Shirk

New Testament Reading: 1 Corinthians 12:1-11 (NRSV)
