Kent’s reflection topics

In his monthly reflections for the year, Rev. Mayfield will invite listeners to focus on single words that open to what Barbara Kingsolver has described as “small wonders,” those events in our lives which grow as much from our own private gardens as from the epicenters of global crisis, and to find therein direction for spiritual development. Kent believes, as we know, in the “holiness of the ordinary,” so we should expect him to make connections between the desire to find some illumination of ultimate reality and the paltry, often painful, experiences of daily life. The single word titles of these Sunday commentaries capture something of the range of ideas and issues he will explore:

Edges

Absolutes

Place

Waiting

Surprise

Hope

Love

Loss

Awake

Next

The precise order may vary, but what is evident is a deep awareness of our shared human predicament and an honest desire to examine life with sense and sensibility. We invite you to join us for the series.
