Sermon by Stephanie Gannon, Intern Minister.
This Sunday marks my last official one in the role of intern minister. I am so grateful for the last nine months we've had for learning, growing, and journeying together. It's been a wonderful experience for me and my ministry, and it's been an honour for me to serve such a dynamic and caring congregation. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Our theme during the month of June is Revelry, and this week in worship I'll be inviting you into the spirit of playfulness. What role, if any, does play have in our busy lives? What are the benefits of play for our overall health and well-being? I'll be arguing that play has sacred aspects and that we need more play in our spiritual lives and in congregational life more broadly. Come prepared to loosen up and play with me!
