Sermon by Curtis Murphy, Intern Minister.
This Sunday will be the last for November's theme of vulnerability. Dr. Vanessa Brcic writes that, “vulnerability is an inevitable condition of being human. Power is not.” While we cannot escape being vulnerable, our gender identity and expression is one factor which affects how vulnerable we are, and to what, and to whom. Conversations about gender can be sensitive and complex, yet in many ways it is central to how we experience our lives, even if we wish that weren't always so. This Sunday's service will explore some of these tensions, and will also include a ritual of remembrance for the 25th anniversary of the Montreal Massacre, in 1989. I look forward to seeing you there.
Yours on the journey,
