It’s Hard to Offer You Love and Compassion When I Want to Punch You in The Face
Sermon by Rev. Karon Sandberg
A provocative title, I know. But admit it, it is something we have all experienced in the last couple of years. As Unitarians, we are called to believe in the inherent worth and dignity of each individual. But does this mean people who believe in conspiracy theories or act in ways that we may find unethical? We have become a very divided nation. Is it even possible to find our way back to one another? Join us as we look at our principles, our religious history, and the advice of a great Rabbi to see if they might be lifelines to help us heal.
Rev. Karon is a retired hospice chaplain that often shares the lessons her patients taught her about how to live. In retirement, she has been working on a book about these lessons as well as finding new ways in which to stretch herself and use her gifts. She speaks monthly at various UU congregations in our area and in other states. She and her spouse, Joel, enjoy hiking, biking, and kayaking around our beautiful state and maybe you’ve seen them at live music venues in town. Their children, Derek and Claire are adulting in ways that seem pretty cool in Chicago and Washington, DC.
