Past Sermon Brief 

“Peace and Wild”
April 26, 2015
Rev. Bruce Southworth

… “Isn’t it subversive – and wild – to want people to unmake their minds and make them up again… to live more eagerly, more hopefully, more determinedly…”?     Rev. John Cyrus (1911-1981)

…. I think of the boy who lived next to a lake.  As a young child, his parents always told him not to go to the lake alone.  One day, he was missing, and after searching everywhere, they walked up their driveway to discover him standing next to the mailbox and holding a suitcase.

The relieved parents ran to him, hugged him, and asked what he was doing.       “I’m running away.”   “Why are you running away?” they asked.  He said, “Because you will not let me go near the lake.”  

Again they asked, “But why are you standing here by the mailbox?”   His answer:  “Because you won’t let me cross the road.”
