Rev. Karen Lindvig Sermon “Call to Action”
Blessing the Children
http://seattleunity.org—In this sermon, Rev. Karen honors the importance of the Divine Masculine on the journey of men and women on their Soul Treks. She described some of the typical qualities and archetypes of the Divine Masculine. And she links the story of Abraham, as an example of the Divine Masculine, with the story of Richard Martinez who spoke out about preventing more mass shootings after his son was murdered in a mass shooting. Then Karen related the Divine Masculine to the Soul Trek theme by using the Star Trek character Jean-Luc Picard as an exemplary embodiment of the Divine Masculine. Karen offers her call to action.
