In an era when the phrase, "thoughts and prayers" can feel like an empty gesture when not accompanied by action in line with those prayers, or when it's easy (and cheap) to use social media for mere virtue signalling rather than doing something, maybe it's obvious that "sin" includes the things we don't do that we should do.  Classic theology has talked about "sins of omission"--what we leave undone--as well as the sins we "commit" in actions, words, and thoughts, too.  But how do we navigate a world where there are so many needs and we have limited resources or awareness?  How do we know the right way to respond in an era of global awareness when tragedies happen across oceans and continents, especially if we're not experts at peacemaking or emergency medicine or disaster relief?  Join us for a deep dive into the "negative" side of sin--the things we don't do, don't say, or don't commit to--in a conversation with pastors Erica, Sarah, and Steve that ranges from current events to wisdom from Dr, King and Frederick Douglass, and from big lofty questions to the nitty gritty of why it can be good to pay taxes, all on this week's Crazy Faith Talk.
