Sunday Morning Sermons
The Faith Community of Saint Sabina has sought to be a progressive voice for justice in the city. Consistent with that calling, on Sunday, February 12, at the 11:15 am service, 3 voices who represented those being disenfranchised and under attack in this present administration spoke about their present circumstances. Rami Nashashibi (Executive Director of Inner City Muslim Action Network), Lillian Jimenez (Attorney and advocate for immigration rights), and Curt Toler (former gang member and St. Sabina PeaceMaker) shared their stories andspoke about our need to come together in our fight for justice. Following their sharing, in the tradition of Pope Francis, Rev. Pfleger, Senior Pastor of Saint Sabina, washed the feet of members from the Muslim, Latino and street brothers to demonstrate the respect, dignity and honor of every human life. Rev. Pfleger said, “In the seriousness of our times we must not let our pain divide us. Rather it should join us together in unity in the fight for justice.”
