A Southern Pastor: Tear Down The Hate

Our scripture this morning for church was from Genesis 45, where we read about Joseph’s reaction toward his brothers when they approached him in Egypt to ask for food. It is important to remember that these are the very brothers who earlier had sold Joseph into slavery.

My sermon can be heard in it’s entirety by clicking the arrow in the audio file below. (I apologize for the times when the sound gets softer; I have a tendency to walk around a bit. The softer parts don’t last long.)




Melanie Tubbs is a professor, pastor, mother, Mimi, and true Arkansas woman. She lives with nine cats and one dog on a quiet hill in a rural county where she pastors a church and teaches history at the local university. Her slightly addictive personality comes out in shameful Netflix binges and a massive collection of books. Vegetarian cooking, reading mountains of books for her seminary classes, and crocheting for the churches prayer shawl ministry take up most of her free time, and sharing the love of Christ forms the direction of her life. May the Peace of Christ be with You.
