This week we celebrate baptism, and welcome special musical guests, The Message. Russ’ sermon deals with the word ‘sin’ – what it really means, why we’re confused about it and how it was never meant for a guilt trip until religious authorities discovered how to turn it into an instrument of social control.

The recording begins with a medley set of songs by The Message for congregational singing, followed by the baptism of Leo Gerald Hugo, and reading from scripture. Russ’ sermon begins at 19:55
