April 29, 2018: Sunday Sermon: In this chapel talk, Stan explores the inherent dangers of spending too much time either in the past or the future. When we’re stuck reflecting morbidly on our imperfect past, wishing things had been different, we can end up angry, sad, and depressed. And when we zoom ahead to a future that doesn’t even exist yet, we worry and suffer anxiety over things that may or may not ever happen. Time travel prevents us from being present to the joy in our lives in the here and now. The key is learning the fundamental spiritual practice of living one-day-at-a-time, twenty-four-hours-a-day, while also learning to “Let go and Let God” take care of the outcomes.
