The Political Elephant – Redux

A few days ago I mentioned that NCC was doing a sermon on politics this past weekend. I wanted to post the video for those of you who didn’t get a chance to see it. Pastor Mark handled the topic very well, and while I may have different opinions on a few issues, it was an excellent message and one that is obviously timely.

This media relies on Flash.

The sermon is also available as streaming audio, downloadable video, and downloadable audio, and in case this sermon piqued your interest, you can check out some others at or subscribe to the podcast.

Since we’re on the subject, I should make the disclaimer that the political views I express here in my blog are not in any way the political views of National Community Church, which doesn’t have any political views. Also, I don’t believe that my political views are normative for followers of Jesus. As the Sojourners have said, “God is not a Republican. Or a Democrat.” In other words, my politics are my politics, not the Church’s politics, not NCC’s politics, not Christian politics, just mine. My faith may inform my politics (although it’s more complicated than that), but other followers of Jesus would say the same thing and come to radically different conclusions (more on that another day).
