Dec. 4 Mark Bernstein — Finding Echoes

Novelist Mohsin Hamid wrote: “Empathy is about finding echoes of another person in yourself.” We can only console another who is grieving, lonely, or depressed by connecting within ourselves something that knows that feeling. It requires understanding, vulnerability, a listening heart. In this sermon we’ll explore the nature and power of empathy.
