Today’s sermon is about death, life, burritos, and being startled into remembering that we are alive. Together we explore how to find our way towards the rootedness in purpose that will enable us to do the hardest things, even loving our enemies and other projects that feel beyond our capacity.

Text is Matthew 5:28-38.

The quote from David Lose is taken from “Epiphany 7A: Telos,” written by David Lose and published on “…In the Meantime,” at, 2/13/17.
