Minister Syeeda Echols: Hold On, Help is on the Way (Luke 13:20-21)
Minister Syeeda Echols, minister of education, youth and young adults at Greater Bosqueville Baptist Church in Waco, Texas and resident chaplain at Baylor University, proclaims that the kingdom of God is more than good news. It is Christ’s rule and reign right now. She explains various ways leaven describes the kingdom of God and its activity in our lives. Her challenge to us is to accept the work and presence of God’s kingdom.
This sermon was delivered during the morning worship service at Greater Bosqueville Baptist Church on October 7, 2018, as part of a series of sermons on the parables of Jesus.
