“Living the Sabbath: When Being Given A Time Out was a Good Thing”

A Georgetown college philosophy professor writes, “The Sabbath once gave us an anchor in life, as well as a goal by which to judge our desires and striving.”  Today’s sermon will examine the benefits of recovering a Sabbath sensibility in our lives despite the fact that it makes no economic sense to do so.

“Jane Kenyon’s Spiritual Struggle”

As I have done in the past with T.S.Eliot and Robert Frost, I have chosen a poet who reveals her spiritual struggle through poetry.  Today, we will look at the life and work of Jane Kenyon and perhaps find a part of ourselves.To request a transcript of a past sermon, please contact the administrative office at admin@firstparishcohasset.com
