Message: “Free to Hate” from Rev. Tom Hathaway

Rev. Tom Hathaway - October 29, 2023

Free to Hate

Ever felt like an outsider peering through a window at a party you weren't invited to? Imagine taking a cross-continental road trip just to be left out in the cold. That's the story of a high-ranking Ethiopian Eunuch we meet in Acts Chapter 8. But then along comes Philip, breaking all the rules society held dear. The result? An unexpected roadside baptism and a lesson in divine inclusion. Join Pastor Tom as he dives into this extraordinary tale from the Book of Acts. Discover how the walls we build between 'us' and 'them' crumble in the face of grace, making room for everyone to find a home.

Scripture References: Acts 8:26-40

From Series: "Unstoppable"

Introducing the “Unstoppable” series, a seven-week deep dive into the Book of Acts that’s more than just a historical jaunt. This is the ultimate origin story, where ordinary people—no capes or magic wands—become extraordinary catalysts for change, thanks to the universe’s best-kept secret: the Holy Spirit. It’s a narrative that broke all the rules, transcending cultural norms and geographical boundaries, and it’s as relevant today as it was two millennia ago. In a world that often feels like it’s on the brink of chaos, the message of Acts serves as a compelling counter-narrative. It’s the story of an ever-advancing force that laughs in the face of obstacles and challenges. And here’s the kicker: you’re not just a spectator. You’re invited to be the next chapter in this ongoing epic, guided by the same Spirit that turned fishermen into revolutionaries and tax collectors into visionaries.
