WN On April 4, 2017, our pastor, Rob Brown, at Eden Mennonite Church in Chilliwack BC preached a great sermon about the Counter-Narrative in the Gospel stories, including the Ultimate Counter-Narrative: The Resurrection. I asked Rob for permission to upload the audio recording (you do not have to sign up for DropBox!) of the sermon (mp3 format – but you may ask me for other formats), and the PowerPoint used. Rob graciously gave permission to do this.

The Counter-Narrative, explains theologian Wes Howard-Brook in several publications, is against a Religion of Empire, in favour of a Religion of Creation. As I explain on my Home page, “The website is overall dedicated to countering Empire and all its brutal, greedy and horribly destructive ways.” Its current most powerful iteration (and more far-reaching and therefore in sheer numbers more evil – planetary in scope – than any previous) is the American Empire.  You may find several articles on my website about that here, with many links to many other resources.
