Adrienne Maree Brown writes, “Pleasure reminds us to enjoy being alive and on purpose… Pleasure—embodied, connected pleasure—is one of the ways we know when we are free. That we are always free. That we always have the power to co-create the world. Pleasure helps us move through the times that are unfair, through grief and loneliness, through the terror of genocide, or days when the demands are just overwhelming. Pleasure heals the places where our hearts and spirit get wounded. Pleasure reminds us that even in the dark, we are alive. Pleasure is a medicine for the suffering that is absolutely promised in life… Pleasure is the point. Feeling good is not frivolous, it is freedom.”
This week we pause to consider the role that emotional and spiritual delights play in our common life and history as we celebrate our Annual Heritage Sunday and gather again for our Annual Congregational Meeting following the service. Join us for this special service!
