Expecting the Unexpected (Sun. 11 Dec, 2016 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Sermon by Rev. Lynn Harrison.

“What did you expect?” Such a simple question, that brings to light our all-too-human tendency to judge others, to pre-evaluate our circumstances and to limit our potential for revolutionary love.

This Sunday, along with Danielle Webber and Rev. Shawn Newton, I’ll be reflecting on our recent experiences in Standing Rock, North Dakota, where we joined in prayer with the Water Protectors in response to the call to interfaith leaders from Chief Arvol Looking Horse. Like any pilgrimage, the experience was an opportunity to be open to the unexpected…and to examine what we expect of ourselves, our culture and our communities.

This Sunday, in kinship with Christians around the world, we’ll light the third candle of Advent, while knowing that our world is expectant with both joyful anticipation and deep anxiety. Join us…as we seek blessings beyond expectations, and as we journey together toward justice and love.
