“Mindfullness and Mortality”

Rev. Bruce Southworth, Senior Minister

Mindlessness is pervasive.” 
- Ellen Langer, Mindfulness – 25th Anniversary Edition

For human beings, life is meaningful because it is a story.”
- Atul Gawande, Being Mortal

This morning I turn to these two researchers and provocateurs whose work can contribute to our meaning-making.

See you at Community!

Past Sermon Brief

Used Books

October 23, 2016

Rev. Bruce Southworth

One used book on my mind cost fifty cents and came from the library at Mt. Angel Seminary in Oregon.  Sam Keen in To a Dancing God reports that as a child he had delighted in his father’s artistry in carving a tiny monkey out of the seed of a peach tree.  When he asked if he might have this magical item, so unique and delightful, his father reported that the one he had just carved was for his mother… but yes, he would carve one for him in due time. A promise was made but forgotten in the years that followed.
