This weekday homily was preached at Emery House.
Yesterday ’s O.T. reading introduced us to the saga of Joseph and his brothers in Egypt. In today’s reading we come to the crucial moment of that story when Joseph “got back at his brothers” for selling him into slavery in Egypt. In a touching few moments he revealed himself to his brothers and showed them how their meanness in selling him into slavery in Egypt was turned by the grace and mercy of God into a way of salvation for all of them.
