Sermon by Rev. Lynn Harrison.
“Gathered here in the mystery of the hour…”
We come together in a time like no other, when we are aware, as perhaps never before, of the inter-relationship of all life and the urgent need for healing and justice.
This is a time of great meaning—and considerable mystery!—as we seek to use our limited time on Earth in ways that are beneficial to the whole. It is a lifetime’s work, and it takes place, always, in relationship with others.
Monday June 21st is National Indigenous Peoples Day in Canada. Pride Month continues throughout the month of June, and this Sunday is a time of significance for many families who celebrate Father’s Day. In these meaningful times we are invited to deepen in our relationships, to listen and learn from one another, and to listen also for the voices of wisdom within that guide us toward love. I hope you’ll join us on Sunday, as we explore the promise of this moment in time and the power that it holds.
After Sunday’s service, members and friends of First are invited to attend a special conversation to consider a new 8th UU Principle, as recommended in the recent report of the Dismantling Racism Study Group. Join the meeting at 12:30 p.m. through this Zoom link.
Finally, as I begin a time of summer rest, study and reflection this week, I hope that all of you enjoy your time with Rev. Ben Robins. May this be a season of well-being, renewal and deepening for each and every one of you.
