The Lost Art of Getting Lost
Sermon by Stephanie Gannon, Intern Minister.
In my sermon for this week, I'll be reflecting on how our culture and communities don't always invite us to be our fullest selves or to talk about our "wilderness" experiences. We constantly get messages instead saying that we need to be in control and always have our stuff together. In order to be a powerful People of Resilience, we need to embrace our own vulnerability and accept that in others.
As Brene Brown argues, “Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren't always comfortable, but they're never weakness.” When have you been at your most vulnerable? Were you able to ask for help? May our community foster the kind of resilience that celebrates our most vulnerable selves and may all of us be strengthened and our relationships be deepened in the process.
Yours on the journey,
