“Euphorically Dumbfounded”

In less than five minutes Sofia Avery-Kapulski delivers her “Euphorically Dumbfounded” homily (which is really better titled a micro-sermon with maximum impact) in which she confronts, delineates, summarizes and wholly determinizes existentially the very things that confound humanity. She speaks concisely and articulately of necessary and possibly immanent new cosmos, multiverses, symbiotic interconnectivity, numerical concepts and incomprehensible theories of time and matter and life and death. She declares boldly, “I don’t believe in ‘God.’ But I believe that entropy is coming for the universe with everything in it and that this universe will die and no mind will be active to even recall what happened.” 

TIME: You can be alot of things in this lifetime – but you cannot be a Zebra!

Rev. Marlin Lavanhar reminds us of the limits of our human experience, the limits of Time.  And reminds us too of the wondrous experiences we can choose to have within this limited amount of Time.

Learn to expand the quality of Time we have because we cannot expand the quantity of Time we have.

Learn to stop our compulsive busyness to notice and deeply appreciate the beauty of life, and connect with our heart and spirit, and with those most important in our lives.  Be grateful for the blessings we have.  And moderate our Time in a way that demonstrates this gratitude.
