Today, Jessica Williams shared drawing parallels between the lectionary reading in Mark 5 (the healing of Jairus’ daughter and the bleeding woman), the history of Pride, and St. Thecla. She asks the question, “what does faithfulness look like?” while pointing out how in each of these stories the rules/law had to be broken in order to be faithful to the greater law of Love, and to the voice within their own hearts. To end, we watched Glennon Doyle’s animated short-story from her most recent book, Untamed.
We also listened to the song “Liberty” by Isa Ma.
Here are the notes to today’s talk.
