The Tao of Spring
Though spring can bring great joy, it can also awaken the many losses of the seasons of life. How can we learn to carry joy and loss side by side with equanimity and grace? This sermon will consider spring from a Taoist perspective and ask: When we are able to experience life with more ease, what might life offer us that it cannot otherwise?
