From the Roots
“The courage to listen to our own conscience and live our own truth is essential to joining,
rather than merging, with the larger circles of life we belong to.”
— Joanna Macy, Active Hope
Sermon by Rev. Lynn Harrison.
Protecting biodiversity is one of many urgent priorities being identified now, as the world responds to climate change. Affirming our own diversity as human beings is essential, too, as we seek to make our personal contribution to the healing of the whole.
What are the “roots” that hold us steady, when we feel anxious about the world? What particular strengths can we draw on—from our family history, our faith traditions, our personal gifts?
When we ground ourselves in these depths, we connect more deeply with others, while at the same time discovering our own capacity for growth that serves the world.
Join us on Sunday April 26th, as we continue our “Sacred Depths of Nature” series with music and reflection from the roots, to sustain us all.
Love and blessings,
