Sermon by Rev. Lynn Harrison.
During the pandemic, many people have turned to art and craft-making as a way of spending time and coping with stress. This is a very wise thing to do. No matter what our skill level, practising an artistic activity offers significant positive effects on our well-being.
Many Unitarian Universalists, as well as other religious thinkers, have suggested that creativity itself has a deeply spiritual dimension. Perhaps all of us are engaged in a continual dance of co-creation in which we are all artists—and we are also the art being made!
Seeing the world this way can transform our perspective, empowering us to make bold strokes for love and justice, and to find beauty in our lives that we otherwise might miss.
Whether you consider yourself an artist of any kind, or not, I hope you’ll join me on Sunday for inspiration, music and community connection.
Love and blessings,
