This sermon will be delivered by Sunnyhill member Claire Pullen, a recent participant in Rev. Magaw’s sermon writing class. In a world turned upside down by a global pandemic, a government-sanctioned resurgence of white supremacist ideology, and a climate crisis, we need an optimism that acknowledges the world’s faults and demands we work to make it better. We need an alternative to the narrative of fear and despair. We need Hopepunk.
