Life’s Longing for Itself (05-13-18 Sermon)

There are almost never guarantees, that the cause will be won, the war averted, that the child will grow up happy and healthy and perfectly safe, or the deliberate smiles that you bring to your co-workers and strangers in stores and in the skyway and the street will ever be noticed, much less have effect. So much in this life is out of our hands, and you do it anyway, and try to do it carefully, reliably, honorably, reverently, and well, which I guess is the trademark of people of faith. We believe all this accumulates.

-Rev. Victoria Safford, “Life’s Longing for Itself”
