Those Cracks in Everything
Sermon by Rev. Lynn Harrison.
“Nothing is perfect, nothing is finished, and nothing lasts.”
According to the ancient Japanese concept of wabi sabi, transience and imperfection are woven into our lives in beautiful ways, contributing to life’s meaning.
We hear that philosophy echoed in Leonard Cohen’s lyric about the “light getting in” through the crack in everything…and it’s expressed in other wisdom teachings, too.
On Sunday, we’ll explore how the undesired aspects of our lives might be welcomed, that they may be held in the wholeness of relationship. It’s the start of a sermon series on the theme “Broken and Whole” that will continue for three Sundays.
Also, throughout the month of February we’ll be celebrating Black History Month, with music from Afrocentric traditions and poetry from a wide range of Black authors.
We hope you can join us on Sunday morning, as we seek hope, inspiration and the blessings of community amidst the brokenness of the world.
