Sermon

In the wake of the 2016 election, guest speaker Steve Almond, sought to respond by writing his new book “Bad Stories: What the Hell Just Happened to Our Country.” He challenges the degradation of public discourse and the “bad stories”—those that are fradulent, intended to sow discord, and lead away from inner lives—that have come to shape us as a people. In ways, we have consented to these stories. Is it possible to cultivate the deep need to believe? Can we fight in a new way? Can we acknowledge our our own vulnerability? Can we dream up new stories?
