The Church of our Imagination
Sermon by Curtis Murphy, Intern Minister.
We all have an imagination. It may be a program that we have "running in the background," most of the time, but it's there all the same. At its best, our imagination is a creative force, which we apply constructively to the problems and possibilities of our lives and our world. It helps us to see potential which may not be obvious on the surface.
What is the untapped potential in our UU faith community? What lies within us, waiting to be born, like the sculpture already inside the marble, waiting to be set free? This Sunday, we will use ideas from ecology and permaculture to explore some of these questions.
This Sunday will also mark the end of my 10-month internship at Toronto First. Wow! It really does feel like just the other day that it began. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve, to learn, and to share in ministry in this congregation. Thank you to everyone for welcoming me into the life of this congregation.
After a short break at the end of this month, I will return to serve as summer minister in July and August. In addition to Sunday services, we will be offering "Sacred Cinema" - short film screenings with reflection and fellowship - several Fridays during the summer. The dates will be July 10th, July 31st, and August 14th, at 7pm. Stay tuned for titles!
Yours on the journey,
