Recalculating (02-18-18 Sermon)

This happens to us all the time. We crave order and control and predictable patterns in this life. When we can’t find them (because they mostly do not exist), we get anxious and we make them up, imposing our will or our opinion or our expectations of ourselves, of everybody else, all over the place, and when the universe rears up on its hind legs and says, “Well, actually no. You’re not the boss of the world, and this is not how it’s gonna go,” we are mightily disrupted.

-Rev. Victoria Safford, “Recalculating”
