Today’s sermon is a little different from other sermons – it’s mostly one incredible story of how Denmark rescued its Jews in the Holocaust – everyday people choosing to see their connectedness instead of their difference, and risking their lives to save each other. As a bonus, this sermon includes the hymn following the sermon, because it was just too wonderful.
