B32: The Sixth Sunday after Pentecost, Year B (2015)

Grace Imathiu

The Rev. Grace Imathiu, Senior Pastor of First United Methodist Church, Evanston, Illinois, is an international speaker who was born and raised in Kenya. She is not only a thoughtful interpreter of Scripture, but also a mesmerizing storyteller who weaves the biblical story through every sermon. She asks about this week’s text from Mark 6:1-13: “I wonder if Jesus asked [his fellow Nazirites] to change. I wonder if he asked them to bring the outsiders in. I wonder if that’s what made them so angry. And I wonder if he is asking you to do the same.”
