Rev. Allen Harden
Sermon: “The Myth of Sisyphus. Is it a tale of futility or something else?”

Sisyphus is a mythical King that the Gods punished for being arrogant and completely disrespectful of rules set by the Gods. He was sentenced to the task of rolling a boulder to the crest of a hill. The task proved impossible, so his punishment became an endless repetition of this strenuous task. Albert Camus considered this metaphor in a famous essay on dealing with the absurd in modern life, which ended with the provocative thought that “One must imagine Sisyphus happy.” There is much food for thought here, and I will ask some questions about finding meaning in difficult circumstances, adapting to our circumstances, and looking for a basis for personal hope.

Vaccination and face masks are required in the sanctuary. Registration is no longer required.
