Some of you probably know that I'm a member of the First Parish Church in Lincoln, MA. Occasionally, the church invites lay members to deliver the sermon. I recently volunteered for the job and delivered a sermon called "Grace Happens." In it, I told the story of something really extraordinary that happened to me two years ago, during the winter of 2011. I won't give away any of the details until you have a chance to read the sermon, or listen to the recording. That way, I hope the story will surprise you as much as the events themselves surprised me!
Just one disclaimer. I do talk about spiritual matters during the sermon, so if that's not your cup of tea, you're duly warned! Let me also say that I don't talk about these topics when I'm teaching Alexander lessons, unless a student brings them up. Even then, I'm very circumspect in what I say, since my students don't come to me for my opinions on these matters.
So, without further ado, here's the sermon. Once again, you can read the text or you can listen to a recording:
I hope all of you are well and enjoying the very early spring.
