Small Blessings

Date: Sunday, July 27, 2014 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Sermon by Lynn Harrison, Summer Minister.

The Sufi poet Rumi once observed that human eyes are very small, and yet they behold the world. Seen through some lenses, our personal lives and struggles may seem tiny, but at the same time they’re momentous and worthy of our full attention.

On Sunday, we’ll reflect on how the small blessings of human experience can point us toward lives of greater meaning and purpose. Like gardeners, we can learn to cultivate the blessings that surround us, and joining together in community, grow into our best selves and contribute more fully to the world. As Mother Teresa put it: “Be faithful in small things, for it is in them that your strength lies.”

As always, I look forward to spending time with you this Sunday.
