Accidents & Providence


Accidents & Providence

In has last sermon at First Church, Minister of Art & Communication Phil Porter shares a couple of stories about the circumstances that led him to be at First Church Berkeley and his understanding of his time there as a long arc of providence. If God has a plan for us ("for our wellbeing and not our harm" as the scripture states) we aren't passives players in discerning our path. We listen with our heads, hearts and spirits to help us see what is in store for us.
