Preached in a church of another denomination for Christian Unity Sunday and Martin Luther King Sunday: we tend to hide our own history and to conceal our witness. But God calls us into a wider ministry.
I’m not sure how it is among Methodists, but we Baptist folks have a strange custom of hiding when we come to church. We hide. We try to get in and get out without being noticed. I don’t know whether Methodists are infected with this disease, but with Baptists it is an epidemic. We hide.
