Sermon by Rev. Eric Meter.
I have experienced a great deal of vicarious relief in recent weeks as I’ve heard reports that many members of our congregation have received their first vaccine shots. Several people have shared with me how getting their vaccination has been unexpectedly emotional event. I would venture that there’s even something of a spiritual experience wrapped up in this, if it helps us feel more connected to life and to one another. While we still have some distance to go—and the growing likelihood of a rough couple of months ahead as we enter a third wave—we can finally sense the decline of the pandemic.
This Sunday, as we take the opportunity to hear from voices across Unitarian Universalism, it will be a joy to welcome Rev. Eric Meter to our virtual pulpit for his sermon, “The Road Ahead.” His sermon asks, while we are beginning to imagine a world less completely defined by Covid-19, how might we best re-enter such a world with our values intact?
Born and raised Unitarian Universalist, Rev. Meter recently completed twelve years as Associate Minister at First UU of Columbus, Ohio. He’ll be joining us from Racine, Wisconsin, where he currently serves as interim minister of the Olympia Brown UU Church.
Dallas and I will be serving as worship leaders, and our special music will be Carrie Underwood’s “You Can Do this Hard Thing.”
See you on Sunday.
In faith and love,
