UU minister's sermon describes aspects of soul

Rev. Gabi Parks of Easton, Maryland shares her sermon "Oh, My Soul" from Sunday 19 August 2012. Two years ago Parks attended Convo for Unitarian Universalist ministers held that year in Ottawa. Thomas Moore was the keynote speaker at the event and Parks’ reflection in this sermon incorporates Moore’s opening talk and his writings about soul. In the sermon Parks considers if the soul is a distinct entity, if it is immortal, if it is eternal, how it relates to food and music, and she shares Moore’s definition of a soul mate. She closes the post with her understanding of differences between soul and spirit, ending with: "After listening to all these musings, you still have to go inside yourself, find your own soul, and try to figure it all out!"
