(Originally published for January 5, 2003)

Have you noticed that despite the recent firestorm that followed Trent Lott's ill-conceived comments at Strom Thurmond's 100th birthday party that the matter is already fading from public consciousness? Lott has paid a heavy price for the remark and the news is moving on to the next hot thing. But before that incident drops completely off the public radar, it deserves some thoughtful treatment from the pulpit.

So for this installment of The Immediate Word, we've asked team member Carter Shelley to write about the power of words not only to create chasms, but also to bridge them, and of the power of the Word for redemption. She is using the lectionary's gospel text for January 5, and the epistle text for Epiphany as the basis.

There are also team comments, illustrations, worship resources, and a children's sermon.
