Readings: Psalm 121 and John 15:9-17
I’m preaching on the sacred idea of “Connection.”
I want to think and feel with you about the ways we are connected to each other, to our congregation, to the world, and to God. Our origin myth, our creation story tells us that God was lonely — and so created humanity, us, for the sake of being connected. Who are we, then, to imagine ourselves that we might live without being connected?
