Finding Serenity. Lay Speaker: Emily Quarles-Mowrer
Have you ever had the sensation that you are flailing, while others effortlessly float through life? When we see a swan gliding across a placid lake, we do not think about the furious underwater paddling that propels it. Perhaps the people we think are floating are flailing in their own ways. The Serenity Prayer attributed to Reinhold Niebuhr says, “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” Join us as we think about the difference between failing and floating in the river of life.
