The Extraordinary in the Ordinary
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” – Marcel Proust
In this service, we explore a number of ways in which our everyday experiences of places, of language, and of people can have a deeply spiritual dimension, which is often overlooked. How often do we drive by landscapes that barely merit a cursory look, only to discover a hidden symmetry, or an invitation to wonder, once we pay them some attention? Or how often do we utter seemingly ordinary words, never giving a thought to their power to evoke wonder and awe? And then there are the people that society deems to be ordinary, who, largely unobserved, go about doing extraordinary things. There ought to be a Sunday service dedicated to celebrating the extraordinary in all that seems ordinary. And on August 26, there will be.
