Things Have Changed
Sermon by Rev. Lynn Harrison
In the 1967 film “The Graduate,” Dustin Hoffman’s character is told that his future success can be summed up in one word: “Plastics!”
A generation later, it’s clear that our convenience-based lifestyle is anything but the route to human (and planetary) well-being.
When it comes to our understanding of success and prosperity, things have changed. On Earth Day Sunday this year, we’ll reflect on how (and whether or not, and in what ways) we can change…to protect life on earth and to care for our souls and spirits during this time of profound planetary change.
On Sunday, First Unitarian’s Green Team will take an active role in our service, letting us know what our congregation is doing to reduce its carbon footprint and inspiring us to do more. Our choir will present Frank Ticheli’s uplifting and powerful “Earth Song,” we'll all learn a beautiful song by Carolyn McDade, and I’ll sing for you, too. It promises to be a thought provoking, inspiring and healing Sunday at First.
Things have changed…and we can change, too.
Come join us.
View the Order of Service.
