The Little Moments Matter

The following is an excerpt from "From the Minister, Contact May 2018 Issue
"I heard a story that physicist Richard Feynman described the experience of a new fundamental insight into the way the universe works as a euphoria lasting for days. How many times did that happen to you, a friend asked him. Only three or four times in an entire life, was the answer.
The big, profound, intense, dramatic insights and realizations in life—the ones that turn your world upside down, the ones that change the shape of your life—happen rarely. Mostly, it’s little moments of hope or grace or beauty that sustain us and feed our heart and spirit.
We gather in community partly to train ourselves to pay attention, to notice, to give our lives to these: the silence when singing ends; the color of light on the stones of the castle; a smile and a hug; the person who says “here let me pour that cup of coffee for you.” Nothing dramatic, all easily missed, ten thousand tiny things.
Last month we hosted a Passover Seder for 29 kids and adults, I was so glad to share this part of my religious heritage with our community. The ritual itself is a remembering and a recommitment – that in every generation new oppressions awaken, and our job is to persistently, steadily face them. The meal, the words, the telling, all give a sense of hope and connection and dedication to those who gather.
For me, another moment that gave joy and hope was after it was all done. Without fuss, without drama, everyone pitched in to help clean up. We took plates upstairs, folded up tables, washed dishes, organized leftovers. Of course that’s what we did after the meal, that’s just how we do things, that’s who we are! It’s such a common thing we take it for granted.
But it’s a reminder that community is a sort of a magic trick: we made something from nothing – a beautiful meal in a beautiful space made only from people working together, each doing a little bit, helping each other, making community, investing our lives in each other.
Washing dishes together in the kitchen upstairs may not produce a euphoria lasting for days, but it can be one of those little moments of hope that sustains a life.
...
We are stronger together!
In hope,
Rev. David"
