The Thing and the Symbol of the Thing

Rev. Nancy preaches often that real relationships have to be at the core of our commitments – in the congregation and in the world. This sermon, inspired by River Roader Jon Kerner, invites us to get beyond the temptation of symbolic or transactional relationships and toward some sense of real mutuality and shared accountability. As a colleague recently said, “the symbol of a stone never could slay Goliath.” How can we build real, accountable relationships in the community of communities?
