“Adulting in America”; Carla J. Bailey, July 2, 2017

“So, what constitutes spiritual, emotional, religious adulthood?” Carla preached. “Is it an ability to grasp seemingly contrasting truths and holding them both as valid, as Karl Barth wrote? Is it an ability to see context as significant as results? Is it to have pared down one’s needs, so as to finally understand that wants are not the same as needs? Is it to be selfless in one’s generosity? Is it relinquishment of stridency? Is it the willingness to confess? Is it such a total commitment to the well-being of another so as to lose one’s fear of death? Is it to understand that I, as an individual, am never as important as we, a community?” Listen now to her sermon.
