Sermons by Rev. Javier Almendárez-Bautista
In 2009, a young musician stood before the cream of the crop of the political establishment and announced he was working on a concept album. An album, he noted, of someone whose life embodied hip-hop, Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton. That artist, of course was, Lin-Manuel Miranda, then only 29 years old. And the vennue was the White House during one of President Obama’s first famous poetry jams.
The Rev. Javier Almendárez-Bautista reflects on Luke 9:28-36 (The Transfiguration): “What we call productivity is in reality the noise we make to prove to people that we are worthwhile… I hope that we will make room for being, just being, in a culture obsessed with busyness. I hope that—come what may—Christ may visit us on a lone mountain top and that he may walk down with us, wherever the road may lead.”View Sermon
