Feb 18, 2018 • 10 am • The Trophic Cascade of God

Sermon

Public Theologian in Residence Marvin K. White upends the story of Noah and the flood (Genesis 9:8-17) by naming the violence of God’s response to the world he created and is now destroying. And instead of giving us rainbows, why can’t God just say God is sorry? But he also explores the “trophic cascade” of something like a major flood that has ripple effects throughout an ecosystem—changes happen up and down the line. How is God trying to “restore us to us.”
