The Rev. Hodari Hamilton has had to cancel for this Sunday so we will be hearing from the Rev. Dr. E. Richard Knox instead. Rich retired to Virginia after 40+ years of ministry in northern New Jersey. Grounded in the powerfully transforming truth of God’s unconditional love, he seeks to make the teachings of Scripture relevant to today’s challenges and encourages all seekers and believers to embody their faith through constructive action for social justice. His ministry includes preaching and teaching. He taught ethics at Manhattan College and taught at Colgate-Rochester Divinity, Union Theological Seminary (Union), and New York Theological Seminary. He received his B.A. from Gettysburg College, M.Div. from Duke, and Ph.D. from Union.
