Born and Reborn (03-13-16 Sermon)

This is how change happens:
We imagine who we’re called to be,
looking backward through the layers,
squinting forward in the dark –
many lives, many hands
form and re-form us.
We inspire one another,
imagine health in one another,
instigate in one another
transformations no one could predict,
and then,
by grace and by our will,
turning, learning, falling, growing,
we stand where we are now – looking back –
amazed at where we’ve come from,
where we’ve traveled,
how we’ve changed.

– Rev. Victoria Safford, “Born and Reborn”
