"Of Promises and Peace"
Sermon by Rev. Lynn Harrison.
"Promises, promises!" It's a familiar refrain, because keeping a promise is often more difficult than we expect. Yet sometimes we discover, perhaps to our surprise, that we can keep a promise—and that to do so brings unexpected rewards.
As we reflect on September’s theme of “Covenant,” we look at the challenge of making promises…while recognizing that some promises may not be meant to be kept, and that our inherent worth as human beings transcends our ability to keep all of our promises perfectly.
Also, each year at this time, we gather around the Peace Pole to renew our intentions to co-create a world of peace. On Sunday, we’ll create a living affirmation of our desire for a peaceful planet--and the promise each of us holds, to make it so.
In peace and gratitude,
