Sunday's Sermon: "All About Us"
"All About Us," my sermon for the 14th Sunday after Pentecost at St. John Chrysostom Episcopal Church. Seeing the hopeful eyes of children in Pakistan who've fled to a tent in a graveyard to escape flootwaters makes us wonder how we'd feel if they were our children. And ours they are, according to the radical empathy commanded by scripture. The wonder is that practicing empathy can deepen the joy in our own lives.
