All around us this first month of the year, we are often reminded to create goals and imagine who we might become. But there is, perhaps, a big difference between becoming better and becoming ourselves. Today’s service, by Susan Kaphammer from the Soul Matters materials, asks us to consider whether we are really excited about the New Year’s work of striving to create a brand new self. Or might it be better to notice an internal whisper that says, “I long to be pulled in more deeply to the self I already am”? Maybe our real New Year’s work is not about pushing forward into self-improvement, but about pausing, stepping back and asking, “What hunger has my heart?”
This service will be in person AND online (see weekly update or contact the office for the link). If you are tuning in remotely on Sunday, the order of services can be found here.
