Sermon by Lori Kyle, Seminarian.
When I was growing up we lived out in the country and grew huge gardens. Like the theologies of many religions, my dad provided very concise instructions about planting, weeding and harvesting. Being a Unitarian means we're not offered precise instructions on how to plant, harvest, or use tools. Instead, we're invited to explore which seeds require what kind of planting in our sacred internal gardens. We're called to appreciate the growing seasons of our lives, to seek out what there is to unearth within ourselves, to ponder how deeply we plant which seeds that potentially bring us new life.
Like roots that draw nutrients from the earth, do our hearts leap at the opportunity to absorb the richness of many of the theological traditions that exist in the world around us?
