It has been a week of disappointing rulings by the US Supreme Court. The court issued what I perceive to be flawed rulings on religious liberty, gun ownership and reproductive rights. A literalistic reading of texts like the Constitution locks their meaning into that of the world in which they were produced, worlds that  ceased to exist decades, centuries and millennia ago.

In the op-ed below Dean Erwin Chemerinsky of the UC Berkeley School of Law shares a perspective I am in full agreement with. 



Prayers for today,

Pastor Jim
