GRUDGES. What are they? Why do we hold them and why is so hard to let them go? And–how can they be a good thing–truly!–that helps us have strong boundaries and healthy relationships. Rev. Claire reflects on the strange and interesting power of grudges to help us be emotionally and spiritually stronger.
Sometimes strength isn’t about standing firm and holding ground. Sometimes strength is about having the flexibility to move, respond, change, and grow. Buildings and bridges are made to bend in the wind; if we don’t bend, we break. Rev. Claire reflects on metaphors of movement and change and how they can help us be strong.
There is no shortage of injustices calling for our attention. Everyday, all day it seems, we are beset with violent rhetoric, and violence itself. The question then, is how? How do we tend to the egregious ills of our day without losing ourselves in the process?
Rev. Claire will reflect on this month’s worship theme of Strength, and how spiritual strength is something different than a strongman’s might.
