Sermon: What You Make of It

blocks wood“What You Make of It”

(June 1, 2014) We pause to “check our privilege” and remember where we have an advantage. The question is not how privileged are we, as if this somehow makes us better or worse people, but what do we do with the privilege we have, that others might share in justice. (Matthew 25:31-46)

My sermon references this video. Take a look!

I invited the congregation to do on their own a printed version of this quiz as a self assessment. I added reflection questions at the end.

For reflection:
How do you feel as you read some of these questions? Where do you feel you have privilege? Where do you feel a lack of privilege?
Where do you feel awareness for others’ struggles?
Where do you see possibilities for power and action regardless of privilege?
How do you feel called to use your privilege?
