The Rev. Dr. Jim Antal

Blessed Tomorrow Leadership Circle Executive Committee Chair, the Rev. Dr. Jim Antal, gave a powerful post-inauguration sermon recently that we are sharing for your reflection and encouragement.

Rooted in his own Christian tradition, Rev. Antal ties biblical stories to the events of today and calls us into faith-rooted action by embracing truth, repenting, and restoring our broken world. Rev. Antal says, “Facing the events of January 6, recognizing that we can only change what we pay attention to, embracing the opportunity to restore God’s creation – to move from an extractive to a regenerative economy – God is calling those who would be faithful to engage these opportunities.”
