Sermon, "Hot Topics: Assisted Death," September 2, 2018

“It doesn’t matter what I think about Assisted Death.  And frankly, it doesn’t matter what you think about it either. What matters is that we are called by God to confront the reality of our own mortality in the context of the cross which tells us that death is not something to be feared.”
