The Heart of the Matter (03-19-17 Sermon)

To have a crocus heart is to know deep down what’s important to you.
To have courage is to filter through the tangled thicket that is this life,
this world –
from every distraction
telling us who to be or what to do or when to fear;
and find what is at our core – our heart –
and from that place we speak our truth, live our values –
to crack the ice and break through the hard ground
to the beauty and the light and fresh air
of integrity, authenticity – a gathered life
where we put our energy and time
as much as we are able – into who we are, what we do,
how we spend our time and live the life we imagine.

-Rev. Luke Stevens-Royer, “The Heart of the Matter”
