The Blessings of Vulnerability
Rugged individualism is part of our American myth often stated as an ideal to be strived for. We should be strong, autonomous, and stoic with vulnerability being seen as a weakness. The reality of life and the ideas of many religions teach something else that human beings are fragile, insecure, and hurting in many ways. This worship service will explore the gifts of vulnerability and how it may not be a problem to be cured but an essential and beneficial part of the human condition.
