Sermon Series: Some Walls Must Fall

Sermon: “Behind and Beyond Our Walls”
Speaker: Rev. Carlton E. Smith

Service Time: 9:30 am & 11:00 am
At the close of our “Some Walls” worship series, we will explore the ancient origins of walls — what they were designed to keep in and to keep out. After some physical and symbolic walls come down, our work is yet incomplete: We have to present alternative frames of mind and processes to ensure what those walls represented is held at bay.
