Sunday Sermon: "Grasp The Hand Of Lazarus"
In one of Jesus's most explicit parables about the afterlife, a rich man discovers that he can't bridge the chasm dividing him from an impoverished man he ignored in life. We have chasms aplenty in our lives, over politics as well as over the dining room table. The difference is that we can bridge them if we choose, as a group from St. John's Episcopal Church did last Saturday when they helped a family in Mexico raise their new home. My Sunday sermon is here.
