Message: “Jesus’ Ministry of Anti-Oppression” from Rev. Dr. Kikanza Nuri-Robins

Rev. Dr. Kikanza Nuri-Robins - January 9, 2022

Jesus’ Ministry of Anti-Oppression

Jesus said he was called to give good news to the poor. This might mean that he intended to minister to those who are poor in attitude, poor in spirit, or poor in self-confidence. Jesus said he was called to give prisoners freedom. This might mean the prison of self-limitation, the prison of narrow mindedness, the prison of negativity and scarcity in your thinking. Jesus said he was called to give recovery for the blind. What are your blinders? What do you miss? What do you choose not to see? What do you fail to acknowledge? This Sunday we will look at the ministry of the Historical Jesus to see how his work informs our values for social justice and anti-oppression.

From Monthly: "Living with Intention"

Living with Intention is different from making goals or resolutions. Intention is something that arises from deep within and connects us with our purpose in life. Instead of New Year’s resolutions, consider what intentions are motivating, propelling, and giving shape to your life’s course. Are they your own or those of others? Is the divine or your deepest humanity speaking to you through your intentions?
