Dreaming and Yearning: a meditation shared at First Universalist

In meditations, talks on April 27, 2014 at 9:23 pm

On April 6th, I had the honor of appearing on the chancel at First Universalist Church in Minneapolis for a service that started our theme of “Life Beyond Your Wildest Dreams.” As noted in the order of service:

This month, we delve into the power of imagination, and dreaming big as pivotal

factors in creating a world of wholeness. . What is a dream that is brighter? What are

the dreams that reach beyond you? What is life beyond your wildest dreams?

In that service, we were joined by the choir performing Eric Whitacre’s “Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine,” a truly remarkable piece.

Here’s a recording of my homily for that service, and you can hear the rest of the service here.
