A sermon by UU Minister Rev. Chris Jimmerson

Dr. Gary Smart, Accompanist
Cameron Norman (Soprano), Guest Musician
We live in a culture that often encourages us to project an air of invincibility. Yet research by Brene Brown and others in the social sciences indicates that the opposite may be the key to living whole-heartedly. Being willing to embrace and express our vulnerability may be the source of authenticity, human connection, and empathy, as well as the ability to both love and accept being loved.
