Title: The Crowd
Pastor: The Rev. Jenn Stiles Williams
Scripture: John 12:20-36
Thomas Aquinas taught that at the center of gluttony is the concept of "too," as in "too soon, too expensive, too much" it is the urge to overindulge in anything. Temperance, by contract is the habit of letting go of our compulsion to overindulge by developing a mindfulness. Gluttony is about enslavement. Temperance is about freedom.
