Wrestling Within and Without

Sep 24, 2023 | Narrative Lectionary - Year 2, Sermons

Rita and Vija explore what it meant for Jacob, and for the disciples in the storm, to wrestle. How have other people struggled with their consciences, and their internal and external obstacles? How do you wrestle?

  • Annie Dillard’s quote comes from her book Teaching a Stone to Talk
  • Quote from Meister Eckhart: “The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God’s eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one loving.” 
  • Quote from Louise Penny in Glass Houses: She features a cobrador, a “cloaked figure acting as a conscience to those without one, forcing payment of a moral debt.”
