Sermon by Curtis Murphy, Summer Minister.
We are a religious community. But wait, are we? Maybe we're a spiritual community. Or "a community of like-minded people." Maybe it's all of the above, but we're definitely a community of some kind, right? I suppose it all depends upon how you define things.
Whether as an individual or part of a group, we have to define ourselves somehow, or else let others do the defining for us. There are risks to both: others can obviously misunderstand or misrepresent us, but we can also err on the side of defining ourselves too narrowly.This Sunday we'll explore the question of our self-definition as a religious, ahem, spiritual community. Yours on the journey,
Curtis Murphy, Summer Minister
