10:30 Service:——Rev. Kathy Tew Rickey, “Mixed Blessings” It has been said that often when we claim to be “blessed” we are actually proclaiming our privilege. How do we distinguish blessings which are unearned and un-asked from those which arise from material wealth and station in life? Also, blessings often arise from sorrow and vice versa. How do we recognize this phenomenon when it happens and how can we stay buoyed in life when the universe seems so indifferent to our pain? Audio of Sermon
