The Tower of Babel – February 12, 2012

Posted on Feb 12, 2012 in Sermon Archive | 0 comments

Continuing our year’s investigation of Bible stories, this Sunday we encounter “The Tower of Babel.” The story of how a once-united humanity came to be divided and scattered is one of those universal myths that appears in many different traditions across time and culture. We now live in a time in which our divisions are felt so acutely and tragically, our need for unity is so urgent, and the possibilities for global community are closer than they have been since the primordial time described in the story of Babel. Part of our Unitarian Universalist practice is to strive to make bridges across difference and to rebuild human connection where it has become estranged. And yet the roots of our own tribalism are stubborn and deep. Are we up for it?
