Joyous Extravaganza

Sermon Quotes:

Don't Hesitate ~ Mary Oliver (1935-2019), Swan: Poems and Prose

If you suddenly and unexpectedly feel joy,

don't hesitate.  Give in to it.  There are plenty

of lives and whole towns destroyed or about 

to be.  We are not wise, and not very often

kind. And much can never be redeemed.  Still,

life has some possibility left.  Perhaps this is 

its way of fighting back, that sometimes

something happened better than all the riches 

or power in the world.  It could be anything,

but very likely you notice it in the instant

when love begins.  Anyway, that's often the

case.  Anyway, whatever it is, don't be afraid

of its plenty. Joy is not made to be a crumb.
