Sermon given by the Rev. Mark Galloway (Bishop-retired) on 22 Pentecost (10/24/2021).

We spend all our life building our own towers of Babel – monuments to sin and pride. Both collectively and individually, we put ourselves in the place of God. We build them brick by brick, over the course of decades, and we become blind to the fact that our building of the towers is not only sinful, but irrational. And therefore, we can’t expect the world to improve – to take down the collective tower of Babel – unless we are willing to take down our own towers, brick by brick. Listen as the Rev. Galloway explains the importance of confronting our sins.

Readings: Isaiah 59:1-4, 9-19; Psalm 13; Hebrews 5:12-6:1, 9-12; Mark 10:46-52
