Sermons from November 2021
Animals are part of the interdependent web of all existence of which we humans are also a part. Humans and animals have lived on our planet together for millennia, and they preceded us by hundreds of millions of years. We are grateful for their companionship, as well as the many other rolls they play in our lives. On this day we will bless our pets and the animals we love.
Around Thanksgiving we spend time cataloging our gratitudes, but Thanksgiving is also a time to see and appreciate our family, whether that’s blood relations, found family, or an entire community. This Thanksgiving, we invite you to reflect on what happens when we extend the warmth of family beyond our single dinner table.
As we begin the process of coming together once again, we face a number of decisions that will define who we are as a church for many years to come.
