Sunday, September 28, 2014: "At 27 Who Knows What Lies Ahead" - Rev. Dr. David Sammons
Our Minister Emeritus, the Rev. Dr. Dave Sammons, was just 27 when he began his journey in ministry with only a novice’s idea of what to do along the way. Now, almost fifty years later, he’s letting go of the active parish ministry, having finished a stint as a seminary prof and doing interim ministries in Colorado and San Francisco. Most of what he did along the way was fulfilling, including his twenty plus years here at Mt. Diablo. But the time came to let that ministry go, and then the others he’s done. How do we let go of something that’s satisfying, like these ministries of Dave’s, especially when we don’t know what lies ahead? Letting go may not be easy, but it’s often what we’ve got to do. This sermon will be live streamed at about 12:00 noon at http://youtu.be/E0jtNTqnKGA
A Message From Our Ministers
Throughout our county, people are looking for a place to connect with others and a place to be seen as a whole person. Finding these connections in a world of quick fixes and throw-away relationships is not easy.
We provide those places of deep connection – where people can connect to themselves, to others who hold similar experiences, and to efforts to address real problems faced by our neighbors and our planet. Increasingly, we also learn from the connections which can be made across difference. And within our community, you can receive inspiration, new ideas, affirmation and an embodiment of how we live together in the wider human family.
For more than 60 years, MDUUC has been a beacon in the community and a strong place for people of all generations—our children. We haven’t always done it the same way and we are gifted with a Living Tradition that changes with the new needs of our community. Come be part of what we are creating together!
