Soul Matters: Possibility

Our year-long series exploring the themes from Soul Matters conitnues with Jennifer Palmer leading the service.  The service will focus on January's theme of "Possibility".  We will talk about an ancient practice,  when people would go to the desert and seek out monk- like hermits for guidance and wisdom. This tradition is referred to as “seeking a word.”  These wise “desert mothers and fathers” would offer people a word or a phrase to ponder for weeks, years and even a lifetime.  The idea behind this practice was that a simple word - when reflected upon with discipline - has the power to create possibilities in us and in the world.
