Now displaying: Category: Expectation
Sep 29, 2019

Sermon delivered by Senior Minister Rev. Alan Taylor on September 29, 2019. Certain expectations make it possible for us to live in community. What expectations do we have of one another as a religious community as we look toward our future?

The theme for September is what it means to lead a life of expectation. To read about our theme-based ministry, please visit http://www.unitytemple.org/faith.

Sep 22, 2019

Sermon delivered by Minister of Faith Development Rev. Emily Gage on September 22, 2019. “Expect nothing," Alice Walker writes. “Live frugally on surprise.” By this, Rev. Gage takes Walker to mean that we should be open to whatever happens, that we should let ourselves be surprised by what comes our way. Don’t get weighed down by expectations—don’t spend your time thinking about what might happen or what might not happen—just let it be what it is. Easier said than done, of course.
