Senior Minister Molly Baskette explores the apocalyptic nature of the Matthew text in which one is left and the other is taken. In the wake of the election and everything else that is going on the world, we may see these times as the end times. But perhaps this is the “beginning of the beginning, not the beginning of the end.” We are called to be even more “woke,” to face the realities that have been revealed, to put our privilege on the line and to understand that God has not abandoned the world to destruction but is calling us to re-creation.Zero Sum God Description
