“Saints or Suckers?”

Rev. Elaine Gehrmann and Worship Associate Ken Cuneo

One critique that has been leveled at those who turn the other cheek, won’t hit below the belt, and otherwise refuse to engage in unethical, deceitful or “playing dirty” practices, is that they are suckers, doomed to be taken advantage of, manipulated, and conquered. On the other hand, there is something to be said for taking the high road, not lowering oneself to “their” level, and remaining true to one’s principles. This morning we will consider the pros and cons of acting with integrity.
