Thank you, Bill Belko, for an inspired and inspiring sermon reminding us that “we are a work in progress.  We are not finished.  We are more than we have come to believe that we are. ”  Yes.  “Transformation and growth require us to pull up the stakes, the boundaries, that are keeping us bound in prejudice and despair.  The spiritual life does not turn on the hinge of conformity.”  Preach on Bill Belko!
