The Beauty in Bittersweetness

We humans are more likely to experience the transcendent, be inspired to be creative, and feel more connected to each other and the world when we allow ourselves to feel the poignancy of longing and sorrow. Susan Cain’s Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole offers insight into the human condition and encourages us to nurture all of life.

Music includes “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman, “A Bit of Earth” from The Secret Garden,  and hymn #1008 “When Our Heart Is in a Holy Place.”

     After the service, we gather for FUCSJ’s Spring Congregational Meeting to approve the 2022-23 budget and honor special volunteers!
