John Hebenton
Who do we hold in contempt and how might the story of the pharisee and the tax collector offer another way?
Show Notes

A conversation about how we read this story of the Pharisee and the tax collector (publican). In what ways do we trust that we are righteous? What does that even mean? Who do we regard with contempt if any? What does it mean to be humble?  Who is God in all of this? 
The sermon finishes with these questions

  • What limits do we seek to place on God? 
  • How do we seek to narrow the wideness of God’s mercy? 
  • What barriers do we put between those we deem unworthy and God of infinite compassion, generosity, justice?
