June 25, 2017, 10:00am – “Courage!”
In this time when our nation seems going backwards and the forces of reaction growing ever stronger, courage is definitely needed. But where can we get courage, when things seem pretty hopeless? This sermon will draw upon some of the great discussions of courage in the traditions of the world, Plato, Aristotle, the Bhagavad Gita, the way of Bushido, and Thich Nhat Hanh for the insights they can give us for the courage needed for these days. Rev. Dr. Jerome Stone speaking.
