Each Sunday, members of our Interfaith family lead portions of the service. Last Sunday Rod Rodriguez shared wisdom from Rumi and Osho to highlight the topic “Letting Go.
The Tent, by Rumi
Outside, the freezing desert night.
This other night inside grows warm, kindling.
Let the landscape be covered with thorny crust.
We have a soft garden in here.
The continents blasted,
cities and little towns, everything
become a scorched, blackened ball.
The news we hear is full of grief for that future,
but the real news inside here
is there’s no news at all.
