No Regrets?

Date: Sunday, July 19, 2015 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Sermon by Curtis Murphy, Summer Minister.

Living is complicated. Each day we make hundreds of decisions, many of them relatively minor - like what to wear, what route to take on our way to work, maybe what music to listen to while washing the dishes. Some decisions are more significant and long-lasting. Sometimes our choices turn out perfectly, sometimes the opposite is true. Sometimes we don’t know what the results will be until months or years later. Sometimes we never know.

So what does it mean to have “no regrets?” Does it mean that we feel good about every choice we have ever made, or everything that has ever happened to us? Or is it more of a frame of mind, a state of acceptance of the inevitable imperfections of life? Is it even a realistic thing to aspire to? Being free of regret is seen as a virtue, proof that we are not dwelling in the past. But is that the only way to understand regret? Come join us for an exploration of these questions on Sunday morning. You won’t regret it!

Yours on the journey,
Curtis Murphy, Summer Minister
