A Slave to Love

The central facts of Philemon cannot be avoided: Paul is returning a runaway slave. But within those facts lie myriad choices facing Paul, Onesimus, and Philemon. Each of those choices tests what it means to be a Christian and feel the love of Jesus Christ. Each one carries the very real risk of hurt, pain, and abandonment. Preached September 8, 2013 at The Congregational Church, UCC in Iowa City.
