Worship with Us
Myths, legends, tall tales, fairy tales, fables and epic adventures... are all stories. Whether written or spoken, stories connect us to our history and telling our stories connects us to each other. In this service, I'll share some short stories that I've written, and reflect on the tradition of storytelling.
Katrina: 10 Years After the Storm
Katrina was one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history. I was
lucky enough to get one of the last planes out of New Orleans on
Saturday before the storm hit on Sunday. Ten years have passed and the
city continues to recover, although some of the more economically
challenged areas of New Orleans -- those hit hardest by the storm --
continue to rebuild at a significantly slower pace than the rest of the
live "plugged in" lives. Often over stimulated, over scheduled, and
utterly exhausted. Whatever happened to the spiritual discipline of
Sabbath -- carving out intentional time at least one day a week to put
away work in order to rest, reflect and restore our spirits for the week
ahead? What can you do to unplug, unwind and reboot?
