10/10/10: “Lego Church: The Power of Many”

Posted on : Oct 7th, 2010 | By | Category: This Sunday's Service

Four weeks ago, I talked about the new reality in which we live, where one person’s words or actions, for better or for worse, can have a huge impact on the lives of others. The Internet and Social Media have amplified “the power of one.”

This past week we paused to remember five young people who took their own lives in the last three weeks because of bullying.

Raymond Chase, age 19

Tyler Clementi, age 18

Asher Brown, age 13

Billy Lucas, age 15

Seth Walsh, age 13

Each of these young people died within the last three weeks as a result of suicide because they were bullied for either being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender or being perceived as g,l,b,t. tax consultants homely.
