“Nevertheless, She Persisted: Esther and Kamala Speak”

Virtual worship, Sunday, January 31, 2021: Nevertheless, She Persisted: Esther and Kamala Speak.  In the Purim story from Jewish tradition, Queen Esther risks her life to save her people. She does this by harnessing her courage and breaking her silence to speak a dangerous truth about her own identity. In this sermon following the inauguration of our new VP, Kamala Harris, we’ll connect Esther’s story to contemporary examples of confronting power abuses, including the Black Lives Matter, #MeToo and “I’m Speaking” movements. How might this “Bad Girl of the Bible,” among others, help us find our voices across racial and gender identities?
Rev. Robin Landerman Zucker preaching, with Worship Associate Nancy Paxton, Music from Roomie Wood and Stephanie Galloway.
