A sermon by Rev. Rebecca White Newgren at Second Congregational UCC / First Presbyterian PCUSA Church of Rockford, Illinois

“There are so many ways we can fulfill to do and be God’s hands and feet in the world…Even when and perhaps because of the violence all around us, god wants us to acknowledge our calling. we are children of God, claimed by God from the foundation of the world…We are blessed beyond measure when we recognize our calling and take up our call.” – Rev. Rebecca White Newgren
