St. Augustine's Chapel at Vanderbilt

Congregation Micah joins us and unpacks a portion of the book of Leviticus with some nuance. Leviticus serves a model for ridding our sacred paces of pollutants—impure touch, comments, or gestures, and abusive power—so that we can ensure the divine presence remains in our spaces. Judaism believes that impurity can cause God to be absent—but what about when our actions in religious spaces causes harm and makes it feel to others like God has left? Our work is to make spaces where brokenness and wholeness can exist side by side because brokenness is a mirror to shalom. Sermon begins at 21:40.
