"Who Tells You Who You Are?"

In February, 2003, William Sloane Coffin visited Memphis for the weekend. He preached at Saint John's, and, held a forum for clergy on the issues of faith and resistance in the run up to the Iraq war. This sermon, which he has preached in many variations and settings, is offered in memory of the last great American prophet of the 20th century whose words must inspire us to be more than we are - and embrace who God has made us to be the prophets and prophetesses of the 21st.

The reader of the text and giver of the introduction is Rev'd G. Scott Morris, M.D., my partner in ministry here at Saint John's, founder and Executive Director of the Church Health Center, and Bill's longtime friend.
