I titled my sermon "Resurrecting the Way of Jesus".
The reading that I shared before the sermon was straight out of the book, and it focused on Matthew 13:33, "Heaven's imperial rule is like leaven that a woman took and concealed in three measures of flour until it was all leavened." According to Meyers, this "may be the most subversive parable in the New Testament".
The sermon itself builds on this, in a way. You can listen to my sermon at this link.

It's very hard to summarize all I've experienced and learned in my personal experiences with the Occupy movement, and I can't begin to summarize all I've learned in the course so far, either!
But on April 6, I shared some of my thoughts in sermon form. You can listen to the sermon at this link.
The picture to the left is from the April 4 event at Dewey Square, mentioned in my sermon. At 7:05 ET, I had the honor of leading a moment of silence, remembering the moment of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s death 46 years ago. (The clock you see here is on South Station, across the way from Dewey Square.) Other speakers at the event were Catherine Hoffman, a local peace activist and nonviolence trainer; Eli Gerzon of the Better Future Project; and a keynote by Chuck Turner.
