Vulnerability and Resilience: The Aging Process
Rev. Dr. Craig Rubano and Friends

Among the treasures in our congregational midst are the stories from those Members and Friends going through the aging process. How does facing vulnerability help, in fact, to create the personal resilience to live vibrantly in the face of loss? And how can we—all of us—learn from one another and live more appreciatively into gratitude and love, together?

Music: Dr. Louise Chernosky, PJ Casbar

March Monthly Theme: VULNERABILITY

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable.

Brené Brown

Honestly, sometimes I don’t have the strength to be strong because I am truly tired of fighting. There are days I want to rip off this superwoman cape because I no longer see the point of being “a strong Black woman.” I am tired of the internal pain that I pretend doesn’t exist. Yes, I get tired of being resilient.

Dr. Carey Yazeed

The secret of vulnerability is not everyone is meant to know. Practice a sacred withholding. Stop giving all of you away.

Cole Arthur Riley

Tis a fearful thing to love what death can touch.

Yehuda HaLevi

I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain.

James Baldwin

The difficult thing is that vulnerability is the first thing I look for in you and the last thing I’m willing to show you. In you, it’s courage and daring. In me, it’s weakness.

Brené Brown

Just because I’m feeling vulnerable doesn’t mean I am vulnerable….Often my feeling of vulnerability has much more to do with events from my past than it does with what’s happening now.

Rev Megan Foley

Self-revelation is the most vulnerable-making thing of which human beings are capable, and yet in that vulnerability we find our deepest freedom.

Maria Popova

Faith minus vulnerability and mystery equals extremism. If you’ve got all the answers, then don’t call what you do “faith.”

Brené Brown

One of the most important things you can do on this earth is to let people know they are not alone.

Shannon L. Alder

Heartbreak is the beautifully helpless side of love and affection.
