I preached in the Los Gatos church last Sunday on the topic of knowing that we are enough just as we are, despite all of the messages we get to the contrary. I decided to post an excerpt from that sermon here:
I find my spiritual and emotional “piece of quiet” when I am able to access that place deep in my heart that knows that I am not powerless in the face of all that is wrong in this crazy world. It tells me that I can live a life imbued with purpose right here in this spot where I have been placed, whether by cosmic accident or divine inspiration. I may not be able to fix everything in the world, but, I can fix some things, and strive to live my life in a way that make this earth a kinder, more caring and better place ... and so can you.
And however you do that will be the right way, as Mary Anne Radmacher said: "Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,”I will try again tomorrow""
We are all limited creatures -- with limitless possibilities. So the best we can do is settle with intention and purpose into this singular, amazing and unique life that we have .. right here ... right now ... in this place we now find ourselves, a world full of tears and pain but also a world full of miracles and joy ... and trust that it is enough ... always enough ... to simply keep trying to be the very best people that we can be
And just as we are, we are enoughBlessed Be and Amen,
