Please read! From Pastor Darren Fred:
Before you listen to this week’s sermon (or even if you don’t), I need to make a confession and an apology. I used the word fat to characterize myself in a personal illustration about being inspired toward exercise and physical fitness several years ago. This was wrong. This is harmful. I believe we should not use the word fat to describe a person: ourselves or anyone else. We all have fat cells in our body — healthy and unhealthy. Many of us have struggled with feelings of shame related to our bodies. Language feeds that narrative. I am angry at myself and sorry to you for failing to uphold this conviction. I am thankful to the person who spoke kindly to me about this after Sunday’s service. If you wish to speak to me personally about this, I am open. Thank you for reading this.
