Hello From the Other Side
Sermon by Ben Robins, Seminarian.
Every year around this time, I watch the movie Groundhog Day. Bill Murray’s character is trapped by the weather in a place he doesn’t want to be, surrounded by people he doesn’t want to know. He’s forced by the scriptwriting gods to live the same day over and over again, until he figures out how to connect with those around him.
The Unitarian Universalist movement has had challenges reaching for diversity. Even with our hearts fully into it, something about our habits or context is keeping us from deeper connection with ‘the other.’
This is a near-universal experience. Adele’s pop song “Hello” is resonating with people everywhere, isolated in their own lives, as she calls out, “Hello from the other side.”
If you could use the resilience of human connection, see you Sunday.
