SELECTED SERMONS 1965-2012

Included here are the sermons of which a seminary president said, "Every page of this book shows what it is about David Randolph that makes for his well-deserved reputation as a superbly communicative preacher," and a popular New York entertainer said, "This book by David Randolph is entertaining and joyful. Read it and it will love the hell out of you and bring you closer to God." What has Jesus Christ got to do with our credit cards? The title sermon of this collection addresses this question in a current expression of David James Randolph's lifelong effort to relate the central affirmations of the Christian faith to the central issues of our time.

Our community is facing a major choice right now as the City Council begins plans to put a cell tower for wireless communications on public property, including Albany Hill, in return for money. Will we allow the monarch businesses to crush the monarch butterflies? We will serve the God of mammon or the God of creation. Putting a cell tower on Albany Hill is like crucifying nature for a handful of silver. It is Albany Hill beauty or corporation profit, and we the people must cry out, “Save Albany Hill!”

If not, we will have sold out the last green hill on the coast of the East Bay for a fistful of dollars. This is a question of values: is money more important than our environment? Will we sacrifice beauty for bounty? Putting a cell tower on Albany Hill will drive a stake through the heart of our community. This must not happen. We must end the effort to destroy Albany Hill before it destroys us. To our city council, to ATT and anyone else who wants to put a cell tower on Albany Hill, we the people of Albany say “No! Save Albany Hill!”
