https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PB2Mu2zBzjw If you can, please play, "Ain't No Way," by Aretha Franklin at this link before listening to the sermon. It played in our worship space before the sermon and we think listening to it before the sermon podcast will provide meaningful context and spiritual nourishment.
