The saying “It Takes a Village” has always been a pillar of our spiritual community and a popular sentiment in American culture but lately it’s been difficult to feel the presence of a thriving interdependent village. This week, we’ll talk about what the idea of a village means to us, and how we can work to strengthen our chosen village moving forward.
Sarah, I enjoyed your sermon of last Sunday: Where is our village? It took me back to my tiny downstate village, population about 1000. I wrote a memoir a few years ago that includes the days of my childhood and youth. Your comments hit the mark. It was almost as if you and I grew up in the same town. It truly does take a village to grow a child. If you’re a reader and interested let me know. I can forward some slices of my village life to you that you might enjoy.
Thank you so much for sharing such kind words. I’m so glad that my sermon resonated with you. I would absolutely LOVE to read your memoir! Let’s connect at next weeks service (:
