Sermon by Stephanie Gannon, Summer Minister.
The road, the way, the path--these are all metaphors different traditions use for the spiritual journey. So many great spiritual teachers leave home, go on a long, arduous journey, and then return home transformed. Where are you right now on your life's journey? What keeps you rooted as you travel along the open road? My sermon this week will explore the paradoxical need to leave home in order to find it, or, as the American poet T.S. Eliot says, to "know the place for the first time."
Sadly, this Sunday will be my last at First Unitarian. I'm so grateful for the opportunities we've had over the course of the last year to learn and grow together. Thank you for sharing your stories with me and for allowing me to journey alongside you over the last several months. I will miss you!
Love & light,
