Get a fresh take on God, spirit, faith, life, love, justice, and community. First Church Berkeley is an open and affirming, progressive Christian church in Berkeley, California, part of the United Church of Christ. We are committed to Jesus’ countercultural and life-giving path. We understand the life of spirit to be a journey, not a destination. Our podcast features the powerful preaching of several of the ministers on staff and special guests. More about the church at firstchurchberkeley.org.
Senior Minister Molly Baskette explores the issue of loneliness. Our circumstances may vary, but we all have some understanding of what loneliness is like. The church—the body of Christ—celebrates connection. How do we make sure to extend that to all who may need it? How do those of us who have already found our connection extend that to others? In the same way that James called the early Christians to pay attention to rich and poor alike, we can treat all people the same with true friendship.
