Sermon

Fr. Didace Kamana, peace-maker, Catholic priest and survivor of the Rwandan genocide, was the guest preacher at First Church Berkeley, where he led a series of events on restorative justice over the weekend. In his sermon, centered primarily around the Beatitude "Blessed are the peacemakers?" (Mark 9), he called the congregation and we called each other to be peacemakers, understanding that we are all blessed by God. And then we sang and danced!
