No Hurry, No Worry

Today’s message will explore if a time like this, of great uncertainty and tumult, can add a feeling, an attitude, can add an acceleration to everything we come in contact with. This Sunday’s message will remind us to slow down. Could the worries we have, those that concern us the most, be tied into our need to be in a hurry? How does our quest to get it done as quickly as possible serve us?

This in-person service was held in the sanctuary at the JCSVV, located at 100 Meadowlark Drive, and featured live singing by our musician Susannah Martin.

“Fill your bowl to the brim

And it will spill.
Keep sharpening your knife
And it will blunt.
Chase after money and security
And your heart will never unclench.
Care about people’s approval
And you will be their prisoner.
Do your work, then step back,
The only path to Serenity.”
                     – Lao Tzu


Based on recommendations from our Covid Safety Response Team, the Board agreed to ease the requirement for wearing masks during our in-person services, beginning last month. This also applies to making announcements and expressing Joys and Concerns from our community microphone. You may read their complete report here, Thank you to everyone for being aware of the ongoing risks and for doing everything possible to protect yourself and others.

Previously-recorded services from September 2020 through April 2022, as well as more recent services from Fall 2022, continue to be available for viewing on our YouTube channel and may be easily accessed from the posting for that week’s service.
