Making Honey from Failure

Making Honey from Failure

August 06, 2017
Rev. Elaine Aron Tenbrink

Poet Antonio Machado writes of this dream:

“I had a beehive
here inside my heart.
And the golden bees
were making white combs
and sweet honey
from my old failures.”

Where do we turn when the failures are so clear, yet all we can taste is life’s bitterness? Join us this Sunday for an inquiry into holding on, letting go, and unexpected sweetness. Worship is at 10 a.m.

Summer Worship Theme: Meeting the Moment
Sometimes it happens in a small room, when your mind quiets, and the rhythm of your breath begins to lead. Sometimes it happens in a conversation, when you take a leap of faith and step into a hard conversation. Sometimes it is that crazy notion that will not be pushed aside, and you make an about turn that leads into an unimaginable freshness of life and purpose. Sometimes it’s showing up in the streets, in a rotunda, in a meeting, in covenantal community. Sometimes it’s showing up for yourself. The religious life is meeting the moment over and over again. Join us this summer as ministers and speakers from all different walks of life, and contexts tell of their spiritual grounding, and stories of meeting the moment.
