Marcus Borg Sermons

“Life is short, and we do not have much time to gladden the hearts of those who travel the way with us. So be swift to love, and make haste to be kind, and may the blessing of God, Creator, Redeemer, and Sacred Companion, be with us all evermore.”  ~Henri Frederic Amiel

Marcus Borg was a Lenten Preaching Series speaker for 20 years and, despite the onset of lung cancer in the fall of 2014, he planned to return again in 2015. He loved Calvary and his many friends in Memphis.
