Sermon for July 2, 2017 - Fourth Sunday after Pentecost - "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord." [Psalm 22:12] If we really were a nation under God, what would that look like? What would it look like if the United States were a Christian nation? On this Independence Day weekend, we’ll explore these questions.
Scripture Lessons: Psalm 33:12-22 & Matthew 10:40-42
The Rev. Dr. Brian Bauknight is today’s guest preacher and Bishop George Bashore is our Worship Leader. Dr. Bauknight, who retired from church ministry in 2007, is on the staff of the Western PA United Methodist Conference in Clergy Leadership Development. Speaking at MLUMC is a bit of a homecoming for Dr. Bauknight. He was baptized in this church and reared through its ministry until he left home for college. It is a pleasure to welcome him home.
