Thou Hast Beset Me (First Morning Service)
Oct. 11, 1970
Oct. 11, 1970. Running time: 1:15:00. Thurman delivers the first sermon on Psalm 139 at Edmonds United Methodist Church in Edmonds, Washington. In this sermon, Thurman reflects on Psalm 139 and affirms the fundamental unity of all life. Modern life creates a false dichotomy between the God of religion and the God of life. For Thurman, the God of religion and the God of life is one and the same. As a result of this dichotomy modern life has suffered the loss of a basic reverence for all life.
