On July 21st, I will have the privilege of giving the sermon, titled What to Expect When You Stop Expecting, at the Greenville Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.
Here’s the blurb for it:
When I was thirty-seven years old, I met my birth mother for the first time. I met my father three years later. In the lead-up to each of these meetings, I made a commitment to myself to expect nothing beyond the first hello. In the ensuing eight (and six) years, deeply connected relationships have unfolded in their own time and way. When I cleared the space of expectation, I found hope, from which followed acceptance, patience and deeper love. The lessons I have learned about how to engage deeply without expectation can apply to any relationship.
