The World is Before You (03-11-18 Sermon)

The world is before you, and you need not take it or leave it as it was when you came in. This is the very watchword of a living tradition.

How might a religion so deeply devoted to spiritual individualism renounce that now, or at least evolve it radically into an ethic of interdependence, an ethic, a theology, a mythology, a sacred practice and a politics, of mutuality? Because the days of flat-earth individualism are done. The physical and psychic damage of individualism needs to be done.

-Rev. Victoria Safford, “The World is Before You”
