Sweating the Small Stuff: Keeping Grief Tender in Overwhelming Times

Led by your Worship Associates. • Bob Whitmire, Tiffany Vencile, Penny Ziarnik.

We’re often told that the key to a happy life is not to “sweat the small stuff:” don’t let little things get us down. This can be useful advice, but in an extraordinary time when tragedy is happening unabated and culture encourages us to dull our empathy for others and get back to business, sweating the small stuff can be a gateway back to our own hearts.

Rev. Brewer preached for us in pre-pandemic days. At the time she was an intern at the Auburn UU Church. Her home church is Allen Avenue in Portland.
