BEING IN THE STATE OF “NOT-YET”
Many scriptures and proscriptive self-help books tell us what a perfect world would look like. But no matter how hard we work for justice, we live in a time far from perfect, and life throws us curve balls that sometimes put us in dread. How do we live in times that are not yet ok, not yet what we want, or not yet what we’ve worked for? Drawing on Buddhism and other religious contemplatives, this will be a sermon celebrating “keep calm and carry on”!
