“Sliding Doors and the Lives We Didn’t Live”

All are welcome!  Masks are required.

Have you ever noticed that all of the stories in our lives that we re-write tend to have happier endings, sometimes even mythic? What is the allure of imagining do-overs of glory? 

As we round the corner to one year of pandemic reality (and colliding with Daylight Savings Time and the Ides of March, to boot),  we’ll explore how the very modern preoccupation of imagining alternate selves can be fuel for fantasy and escape, but also fodder for regret and despair. We’ll ask: “How can we reckon with and make peace with the lives we have led and are living now without gazing into a murky ‘what if’ crystal ball?”

Rev. Robin Landerman Zucker, preaching, with Worship Associate Pia Driessen-Knittle. We’ll hear our Beacon choir, under the direction of Jason Drahos, and piano pieces from Austin Shaw.
