The sermon title is also the title of a recently published book by Rev. Steve Edington. It traces his religious and spiritual journey from an evangelical Baptist church in southern West Virginia to a forty-year career as a Unitarian Universalist minister; and offers some of the insights and conclusions he has come to along the way. His sermon has to do with how we explore and cultivate a relationship with that which we sense is greater than ourselves without getting too ensnared in religious language or terminology. It is part of our human condition to look beyond ourselves for some greater meaning or purpose in our lives. Our various religions have sought to deal with this condition—and it is a condition we all encounter however “religious” or not we may consider ourselves to be.
