Sermon by Angela Klassen and Rev. Lynn Harrison.
“The toe bone’s connected to the foot bone,
the foot bone’s connected to the ankle bone,
the ankle bone’s connected to the leg bone…”
And so it goes! An old folk song, based on an ancient Biblical text, that speaks to the way every part of the body is connected to every other part and brought to life by something that transcends any one individual.
On Sunday, we return once again to our theme of The Body, to celebrate the divine uniqueness of each of our physical selves and reflect on our body’s importance to the whole of community and life itself.
I’ll be sharing the online pulpit with our Director of Lifespan Religious Education, Angela Klassen, who will share her deeply inspiring perspective on how relationships provide the “connective tissue” that brings everybody together at First Unitarian, providing life, hope and support during this time of change.
I will offer a personal reflection on bodies both earthly and celestial, affirming the place of each of us in the Web of Life. As in each of our services on The Body this month, we’ll affirm that each of us is worthy, beautiful, and enough exactly as we are. We’ll hear that message in poetry, sermons and song, with special appearances this week by Danny Fong and Tahirih Vejdani.
As always, we are deeply grateful for our connection with you.
