Seeing True Worth Despite Financial Downfall and Political Demonization

By Efrem Smith 10-10-2008

Editor's Note: I've been enjoying The Sanctuary Covenant Church sermon podcast for some time now and thought it would be great to feature clips from time to time to share Pastor Efrem Smith's powerful preaching with you all. He's given us permission, so here's the first installment of what I plan to make a regular feature.

In this clip, taken from a Sept. 28 sermon, Pastor Efrem talks about how we should find and assign true worth and value in the midst of both an economic crisis and a divisive political environment.

[Listen to the full sermon, "Intersections: Worth and Value"]

Efrem Smith is the senior pastor of The Sanctuary Covenant Church, with the vision to be an urban, multi-ethnic, relevant, holistic, and Christ-centered community. He has held leadership positions in organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club of America and Fellowship of Christian Athletes and is the author of numerous articles and books, including The Hip-Hop Church.
