Resource Assets & Materials

In this sermon, Rev. Adam Hamilton considers the first major division in Christianity, recorded in Acts 15, over whether Gentile believers needed to be circumcised and obey the Law of Moses. He also shares about The United Methodist Church’s divide and our bishops’ proposal for the church going forward regarding same-sex marriage — which, like the apostles’ solution in Acts 15, is a compromise that makes room for conservatives and progressives in the church. Adam also shares personal reflections on the proposal, both in light of scripture and the prevalence of conflict and division in the early church — noting that nearly every book of the New Testament addresses conflict, and they all offer the same answer.
