When God does a new thing, a new way of living goes with it. The cross of the ashes tells us we are defined by God’s grace, which reminds us we can engage the world around us in critical, crucial, and faithful ways in the work of reconciliation.

The manuscript for this sermon is not available at this time.

Rev. Jessica Tate is a minister in the Presbyterian Church (USA) and the Director of NEXT Church (www.nextchurch.net), a relational community of (primarily) Presbyterian Leaders – pastors, elders, church members, youth leaders, seminarians – who believe a vibrant and thriving church shares the good news of Jesus Christ in ways that transform individual disciples and the communities in which we live and around the world. We believe God is doing a new thing and are deeply invested in (and curious about!) how we can be the faithful church in the 21st century.
