11:15am Sermon, The Rev. Kristin Kaulbach Miles: "Where Does Forgiveness Come From?"

September 13, 2020

In today’s Gospel, we see the travesty of an enslaved person who disassociates from his own pain and fear, lacking any empathy for another in a position he was recently in. He heaps misery, not relief upon this person because he lacks what the Rev. Kristin Kaulbach Miles describes as a spaciousness of spirit. “Love is space. To come from a place of love is to be in acceptance of what is and allow others to be just as they are,” which requires imagination, humility, and a ceaselessly forgiving heart. The readings are Exodus 14:19–31, Romans 14:1–12 and Matthew 18:21–35.
