Sermon: Sunday, October 18, 2015: Twenty-First Sunday after Pentecost

While we may each have a different experience of grief and loss when it comes to our immanent departure from this building, our historic home -- we all know very well what it is like to have an experience of everything changing, what we lose and what we gain. By sharing our testimonies with each other, by sharing our stories of suffering and loss, we also create new openings for intimacy within the community, for a mutuality that makes our present sufferings more bearable and even transforms them into something new and life-giving.
