Each year, autumn is a time with rhythms begin again: school year, leaves changing, we return from the play of summer into our normal patterns. It’s a good time to refresh our vision on our sacred story, make room at our common table, and consider how we are animated to participate in and by divine love. This Sunday we revisit our Rhythms and Values at Pearl.
Sermons at Pearl seek to engage the ancient stories, poems, and letters in the Bible through imaginative oration that rouses our wholeness as human beings. The act of the sermon at Pearl is space to ponder the sacred, opportunity to consider the mystery and love of God, and provocation to slow down, to think deeply, and to be stirred and inspired to bountifully live.
As many of us return to more consistent pace and pattern, after summer, it can be helpful to remember and reflect upon why we do what we do. This sermon series therefore intends to remind us of the rhythms that we are intentionally cultivating together and it celebrates our values, which define the fundamental elements of our essence and character.
