Welcome to The Meeting Place and week two of our new series called VICES... ‘A visitor’s guide to the seven deadly sins.’
Last week, in our prequel to this series, we explored why these seven deadly sins continue to pop up in our culture in TV shows, movies, books and art.
And we learned why these seven are important to wrestle with if we seek to understand ourselves, our struggles, and our place in this world.
Sloth is a word we typically associate with laziness: Sitting on the couch watching reruns of The Office and munching a bag of Doritos. Yet somehow, sloth makes it onto the list of the seven deadly sins.
How does something as benign as sloth even make it onto a list of dangerous activities, never mind the list of deadliest vices? Well, we’re about to find out. Welcome to Sloth Sunday!
