Rev. Megan Snell

This recording begins with a performance of "Keep Your Lamps" by our own Nahant Village Church choir. After the song, you'll hear the sermon.

This is the third sermon in our series on communication and civil discourse here at the Nahant Village Church.

This sermon was a part of a congregational discussion. At the end of the sermon, Rev. Megan asks three questions which the congregation then responded to.

1. When has someone spoke life and love into your life? What did they say? How did that feel?

2. How do you want to grow in your communication skills?

3. What is your prayer for the church, the town, and the world regarding communication and civil discourse?

From the sermon: 

"My prayer is that we speak as humanity from a place of love. That we endeavor to build one another up with our words and our deeds. And, that we listen deeply to one another- lifting up especially the voices from the margins of society, those that have been oppressed and discarded. I want to center those voices and listen deeply for God’s call in our lives. "

Preacher: Rev. Megan Snell, MDiv., Pastor, Nahant Village Church (UCC)

Scripture: Psalm 19
