Jesus Wasn’t Sentimental and What That Has to do With My 40th Birthday Party

My 40th birthday party happened six years ago – but my dear friend David Dill recently reinterpreted the event (which featured a beautiful restaurant and 25 of my very favorite people), much to my amazement, in a sermon he delivered to Trinity Church in Boston. David is a stunning storyteller and the crux of this sermon is the notion that Jesus was not in any way sentimental.  He explores how that non-sentimentality can be a important state of being – no matter what sort of spiritual path we might be following. This sermon is a tremendous gift – to know that someone heard so well is a wonderful thing.

The party begins about 7 minutes in to the audio podcast below – but listen to the entire sermon – David is onto something.

    I keep learning new things about you Paulette. i saw a sign the other day that said ‘courage is fear plus prayer’ and i think that about sums up life, like your forward-looking birthday party.

    yet i am sentimental. this is why i take so many photos. to be sentimental is to truly value and see the beauty in the past lived experience too… so i define it a bit different than your friend.
