Each of our lives has places of darkness and light, moments of rejection and rejoicing, glimpses of wholeness, and the pain of brokenness. In a talk titled “Broken Open,” the Rev. Claudia M. Frost addresses these experiences at this Sunday’s Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Service.

Brokenness is a part of every human life. Life can turn, and we are changed in an instant. Such unexpected blows can break our connectedness with others, resulting in loneliness and isolation. There are so many unspeakably terrible things in this beautiful world. Innocent people suffer. Relationships fall apart. We all experience brokenness if we live long enough. It’s part of being human. No one is exempt. How do you respond to the suffering that is part of every human life? Are the experiences of change and transformation ever complete? What does it take to hear the call of the soul?
