As followers of Jesus, we’re called to be saints, not heroes or champions, but what’s the difference? How do we seek justice, find wisdom, act with courage and selflessness, and strive for a life rooted in humility, grace, and love – modeled after Jesus?
This is the second week in the series, “The Faith of a Mockingbird.” Pastor Mary’s message is based on Harper’s Lee’s book, To Kill a Mockingbird, the 1962 movie of the same title, Matthew 5: 1-12, and 2 Corinthians 12: 9-10. To read it, click here.
We’ll use a short clip from the 1962 movie, To Kill a Mockingbird. We have to show a “be right back” slide in the live stream as it plays. Here are links to the clips we’ll show and another that tells us more about Atticus:
- Atticus talks to Scout about insults and rumors.
- Atticus addresses the court, describes Mayella’s guilt for tempting a black man, and the consequences her guilt has caused.
