Of Grace and Gratitude
Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton.
|"We are here to abet creation and to witness it, to notice each thing so each thing gets noticed. Together we notice not only each mountain shadow and each stone on the beach but we notice each other's beautiful face and complex nature so that creation need not play to an empty house."|
|-- Annie Dillard|
I think Dillard is right. If this isn't our work in the world, what is? And, yet, how easy it is to shirk our duty, to neglect our privileged responsibility on this earth. How often we fail to truly notice the wonders that come for free with the gift of being alive. How (and why) could we take so much of our lives for granted? On Sunday, we'll explore what it would mean to live in a different way.
In faith and love,
