Rev Fred Cappuccino, one of the luminaries of Canadian humanitarianism AND Canadian Unitarianism, preached at church this morning on his view of Jesus. It was an AMAZING sermon; especially since a lot of it was a very extended quote from somebody else’s sermon. He did a meditation which moved me to tears and which he allowed me to scarf after the service. I shall TREASURE it, and I’ll post it when I re-type it. It’s a science fiction blessing! It’s amazing.
Had what I thought would be an exceedingly unpleasant conversation with a fellow congregant, which turned out not to be unpleasant. To truly say things with love is hard. I hope to get better at it.
AND it was the water ingathering, one of my favourite Unitarian rituals; I got up and poured water for Transition and Change, that being the kind of summer I had. Mike came back to work with me; Katie finally freed herself of the family she’d entangled herself with, both the kids got full time jobs, I committed to getting my back better and it’s already better; I committed to singing and playing as part of my every week schedule; I finally got to Wreck for the turning of the year; work changed, possibly for the better over the long haul; I shook most of my depression off; I realized that I’m not a gardener, but I can tend other things.
And there was a baby and there was a kitten, and there was a young married couple getting into the just married car, right on my street as I came home. I sang out, my heart full and a big smile on my face “Good luck” as I went by. Even if you don’t believe in God, it makes for some power in the morning.
