Yesterday's sermon was a first in that it started as the blog entry Have a very active left prefontal lobe day
. At that point, I knew the blog related to a reading for the coming Sunday, but thought I would preach on the Gospel of Jesus changing water to wine. I came to realize that I could easily preach the water to wine story, but that it sounded more like a history lesson and wasn't what I needed to preach. So, I revisited happiness. The sermon is online here: Discover Yourself
. In it, I reference a Spiritual Gifts Survey, which I ran across when serving as a lay pastor at Church of the Spirit
while in seminary. That survery is online here: Spiritual Gifts Survey
in Adobe PDF format. I also mention Dr. Martin Seligman's similar Signature Strengths Survey which is found at his website: AuthenticHappiness.org
. You have to register to take that survey, butit is free.
In the archives is the related, but different sermon How to find peace and happiness
