Psalm 23

John 4:1-30

In today’s sermon, our minister, Peter Bluett, continued the theme of the myth of redemptive violence, by looking at an example used by the theologian Walter Wink of a society which has traditionally been non-hierarchical and non-violent, namely, the Batek Negrito people of the Malaysian peninsula. Contrasting this with the domination systems identified by Wink, common in Western culture, he then went on to explore Jesus’ vision for society.
