Virtual worship for May 23, 2021: “Learning to be Rescuers” Sandra Lubarsky, Guest Speaker. Stories of moral agency exercised in turbulent times can help us become the kinds of people we want to be and do the good work we want to do in a world that is fast approaching ecological chaos. As surely as we need to know about the material aspects of the state of the world, we need to cultivate what the writer Terry Tempest Williams calls “an active heart.” Though victims, perpetrators, and bystanders are the standard roles assumed by people caught up in terrible world events, they do not exhaust the possibilities. Some people take on the role of rescuer. We can learn to be them. Hosted by Rev. Robin, Music from Stephanie Galloway and recorded selections.
