Listening with Compassion
Type of Event: Worship Service: Sermon only
Date Recorded: November 07, 2021
Location: Bryn Athyn Cathedral
Week 4 of the Journey program "Tell Me More". In the Parable of the Good Samaritan the Lord presents a scenario in which the listener is invited to consider who was neighbor toward the man who fell among theives - the priest, Levite or Samaritan. The first two "passed by" on the other side but the third stopped and "had compassion" (Luke 10:33). Sometimes our compassion toward others is spontaneous, at other times it's not - why is that and what can we do to be more consistent?
