This Sunday’s sermon is on Mindfulness, Rut Stories and River Stories
Speaker: Jim Thompson
Scripture: Proverbs 29:18
Where there is no vision the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he (sic).
Philip Pullman, author of the fantasy trilogy, His Dark Materials, said, “After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.”
But there are helpful stories and unhelpful stories, and our spiritual journey depends, in large part, on the stories we embrace and the ones we reject. This Sunday, Jim Thompson will share a lot of stories within a framework of Rut Stories (that keep us in a bad place) and River Stories (that help us get to a better place), and provide some examples of how mindfulness benefits from and contributes to our thoughtful selection of the stories we want to live by.
