Loving Labor

At the Board retreat a few weeks ago, we read a poem that had the line “joy of struggle” in it.  A few different Board members commented on that

My neighbors let me pilfer some of the fruits of their labor….mmmm…sungolds…

line: “the joy of struggle.”   No one wants to “struggle,” just like no one wants to ‘work’– wouldn’t it be nice if we could lay around all day and eat grapes?  But, for anyone who has been unemployed knows,  labor provides structure and meaning to our life.  And sometimes the stuff that is hard, that is a struggle, can provide the most meaning of all.

What labor are you doing in your life that is providing meaning, even when you don’t like it?

This Sunday: The Labors of Love
We gather to honor all the labor that has brought us to where we are today, to remember the work, the love, the struggle, the care.  Rev. Darcy will lead members in an extended meditation and then members will share about the labor they would like to honor.  Worship Leaders: Rev. Darcy and Todd Whiteley
