Reverend Shana Lynngood – Often our lives are so full that we spend a great deal of time not paying attention to the moment we are living. We are focused on past regrets, mistakes, or nostalgia for what was, or we are looking ahead to what may be. Spiritual sages in many traditions (perhaps most especially Buddhism) advise that attentiveness to the present is a critical practice making the most of one’s life. How do we soak in the present? This is the auction sermon requested by Mike and Lisa Greenly.
