A Tale of Two Pats - Advent Love
Adolescence is a tough time. Was there someone with a lot of love for you to help get you through those years? This sermon is a reflection on some lovely stories of just that. In scripture Joseph answers the call to be there for Jesus, and I share another story I heard from an interview with Patrick Haggerty on how wisdom from his Farmer Father, told to him while an adolescent, inspired him to write the first country album with openly gay lyrics. And after attending a youth service this past week, I was inspired to hear loudly and clearly, that young people need adults and faith just as much as they ever have.
