A lifetime is made of moments and choices. As we live in the midst of the long arc of history, doing our best to bend it toward justice, and as we live in the midst of our own lives, how might we renew our hope, our courage, and our joy on this long haul journey?

February Worship Theme: The Long Haul (Perseverance)
The Chinese symbol for perseverance is a knife poised over a heart. There is something about the long haul that requires big heartedness, strength, a willingness to be wounded, and still lean into life. Author and social critic Margaret Wheatley writes, “Human experience is the story of perseverance.” Every one of us knows what it is to be in it for the “long haul.” At one point or another this life will require us to do something that’s hard, that we hate, that hurts, or that we don’t believe we can do, but we do it. The question is how to go the distance without the journey eating you alive? This month we explore the nature of perseverance, the long haul, and finding the life giving qualities-entwined in it all.
