The Rev. Laura Everett was giving a Zoom sermon this morning for the First Baptist Church in Jamaica Plain on lessons from the death of Lazarus in the age of coronavirus when some racist and homophobic Zoombombers showed up.
She reports that she and church members found themselves joined by "[F]olk who have nothing better to do than shout racist and anti-LGBT slurs to people trying to follow Jesus decided to enter. It was heartbreaking."
I believe in open doors at church AND in the safety of vulnerable people. I keep thinking about "Kenny" calling in from "Colorado" and what brokenness must be happening in his life to do such a thing. Pray for all wounded by his words, and pray for Kenny, whoever he is. ...
I, and my wife graciously running tech support for me should not have had to hear this. Neither should any child of God. This one hurt.
Watch her sermon (without the interruptions).
