Healing Harm through Bylaws. No, really.
Rev. Dr. Matthew Johnson
The second in a two-sermon series about my “extra-curricular” work as your minister. My other major project has been re-writing the accountability procedures of the professional minister’s body. This seems like technical work, but it’s actually profoundly spiritual work about how we heal harm, promote accountability, and serve justice. I’ll share what I’ve been doing, the controversy it has engendered, and draw some lessons for our life together as a congregation as well as for society at large.
