The Sunday after the Inauguration, Rev. Sammie Evans preaches on Luke 4:14-21. Jesus comes to give mercy, to proclaim the Year of Jubilee, and to extend shalom. As followers of Jesus, Sammie compels the community of God to embrace the Year of Jubilee through their belief in the gospel and their commitment to social action.
