Sermon by Lynn Harrison, Summer Minister.
Rumi writes, “We have fallen into the place where everything is music,” and human beings have often drawn connections between musical harmony and spiritual well-being. Meanwhile, life often presents us with times of dis-harmony and imperfection, as well as “in-between” times of silence, uncertainty and waiting. Through all of the changes of life, staying “tuned” to something more than our individual lives can help us move gracefully and with faith.
This will be my final Sunday at First Unitarian, before I return to Emmanuel College to complete my seminary studies. I know you will give Curtis Murphy a very warm welcome as your new Intern Minister. He is a gifted and dynamic candidate for UU ministry who will enrich this community greatly.
Although I would like nothing more than to remain in contact with you, internship requirements make clear that I must detach from the Toronto First community for a period of time. As I comply, do know that you remain in my heart, with gratitude for all you have taught me and the joy of our time together.
