Embrace Your Weakness. Embrace Your Failure

Dave Dunn, Ministerial Intern

We are enamored with the allure of “success” and the idea that it can come without the price of failure or the exposure of our weakness. We have inherent worth. We also have inherent weakness and vulnerability. We all experience failures and disappointments – even when pursuing that which we feel called to do. Weakness and failure are built in to the fabric of our existence yet can they also be keys to unlock the chains that bind our full potential to lead fulfilling lives?

All Roads Lead to Where We Stand

Rev. Robin Landerman Zucker, Assistant Minister

It’s been famously said that “All who wander are not lost.” On a morning when Palm Sunday and Passover meet at the crossroads, we will explore together how the wanderings of Jesus and Moses reflect our essential human journey from the source of who we are, alone in the beginning, to life amongst “tribes,” and then back again to ourselves. How might we retain the wellspring of that source when we are in the wilderness? What Promised Lands do we envision as we wait for manna or gaze down from mountaintops? Our Dance Choir will present a journey piece choreographed especially for this service.
