Solidarity Doesn’t Suck

March 3, 2005 by

I love this story. Kevin Burkhart, pastor of United Methodist Church in Curtis, Neb.—known as “Rev. Kev”—shaved his head to show solidarity with two members of the congregation who are undergoing chemo treatments for breast cancer. It’s a tiny gesture and part of his broader point of the way we need to support one another, especially in hard times. It’s not marketing per se, but it’s a sermon in action—and that rocks.
