Raquel St. Clair Lettsome

Raquel St. Clair Lettsome is an Itinerant Elder in the African Methodist Episcopal Church with two decades of congregational ministry experience that transcends denominational lines. She is also the the managing partner of Say AMEN! (www.sayamen.org), a digital clearinghouse for preaching, teaching, and worship arts. In this week’s sermon from Matthew 13:31-33, 44-52, she looks at the parable of “The Pearl of Great Price,” and compares the Kingdom to that pearl, and everyone looking for that Kingdom to the merchant who will not rest until he finds it.
