Rev. Dr. Larry D. Pickens' "Plenty Good Room" is a good sermon for the Black History Month. Rev. Pickens bases the sermon on a negro spiritual by the same name that emphasizes the inclusiveness of God.
The slave forebears understood that God was a creator of living hope and that Jesus’ promise that there are plenty of living rooms in heaven promises acceptance for all. The sermon teaches that God does not discriminate in terms of race and is a God of equality. People who face rejection have hope in Christ whose love is unconditional. People may be unable to accommodate the people they hate, but God’s love is all-inclusive, which is why prepares rooms for all people in heaven.
