"Long as Time and Brief as Love"
Stephen writes..."This isn't a holiday sermon--but then again, it can't help but be preached now. The political hand has weighed pretty heavy on my preaching for some time, and although I don't take back a single word, I have been yearning to get back to what draws me to church in the first place--a renewed sense of love, of connection, of the sense of the eternal in our plain, everyday life we have been given. And if this is what my soul craves, maybe this reaffirmation is what you are needing now, too...Some stories, some memories, some evocations of what makes life worth living in whatever time we get as a gift. See you in church, Stephen"
