“We are enamored of champions because they seem to have something we don’t have. But that impression is false. As individuals, each of us has the capacity to be a champion. As a religious institution we have the same capacity.
During this service we will look at: What a champion is not. The characteristics of a champion. The rewards of a champion. And we will ask ourselves whether or not we wish to partake of the glories of being a champion because champions are made by deliberate choice. This is the same as asking, as a congregation, how committed we are to fulfilling our religious mission.”
