“Am I my brother’s keeper?” It’s a question as old as the story of Cain and Abel, two brothers who competed with each other for God’s blessing.
“Am I my brother’s keeper?” Since the beginning of time, we’ve been asking this question. Some have said no: “I need only care about myself.” But others have looked to the Kingdom of God, in which we care for one other as brothers and sisters. In this service, we explore the traditions of Christian monasticism and intentional community. We also remember Macrina the Younger, an early Christian nun, saint, and big sister who inspired her whole family to live extraordinary lives of holiness.
