Do you question how it's possible for life to be affirming, religion to be relevant, and our daily human journey to be full of hope in times riddled with division, cynicism, and negativity? If so, Robert Lee Hill has fifty-two messages for you.
In Life is to Be Celebrated: Selected Sermons – Messages for the 21st Century (Caroline Street Press, 272 pages, October 2021), the author, poet, and minister responds to that overarching question with fifty-two messages born out of his experience as a pastor and community leader. Bob returns to the show today to talk about his book, who sermons are for, and his conception of what Hell actually is. Listen in!
