Rev. Gil Caldwell, guest minister

Regardless of how one views the Bible, it is filled with illustrations appropriate for today. Matthew 18:12 in the King James Version “speaks” of “90 and 9 sheep and the 1 who has gone astray.” The 99% Wall Street Occupiers seek to bring the 1% who have financially gone astray, back into the fold. “The more things change, the more they remain the same.” Music by Helen Kho.

Gilbert H. Caldwell is a retired African American United Methodist Church minister. He was active in the Civil Rights Movement and was acquainted with UU Minister Rev. Jim Reeb who was attacked in Selma and died a few days later. He was one of the founders of Black Methodists for Church Renewal and United Methodists of Color for a Fully Inclusive Church.
