This is the sermon delivered by Rev. Don Van Antwerpen to the congregation of the First Reformed Church of New Brunswick, New Jersey, on Sunday, March 23, 2023.

Drawing from John 4:5-28a, and Romans 5:1-11, join us for an exploration of what it truly means to stand with oppressed and marginalized communities, and how that typically means that we need to shut up, listen carefully, and take the hit, rather than being the hero of the piece.
