The Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost | St. James 2023
In this profound homily, Dr. Catherine Meeks unravels biblical narratives, shedding light on the tales of Jacob and Esau and their relevance today. She underscores the transformative power of forgiveness and the importance of examining our 'inner community'. Emphasizing pressing societal issues like race and poverty, she implores listeners to be present and conscious of their inner drives. Drawing from her recent book on racial healing and referencing Howard Thurman and Naomi Shihab Nye, Dr. Meeks offers a poignant reflection on life's challenges and the perennial need for kindness. A homily guiding us toward profound understanding and introspection.
