According to a recent US Surgeon General’s report, one-in-two adults in America report experiencing loneliness. And for many, each holiday season forecasts another round of holiday blues. On November 19, Bill Heavlin addresses this topic in a sermon entitled “Hymn for the Lonely in Spirit.”
Arranged in four parts (verses), Bill interweaves psychological and sociological research, poetry, and personal experience to consider both the sources of and emotions around loneliness, and also the ways one can enhance its opposite, social connection. And when we focus on social connectedness, Bill notes how this opens up new avenues to social justice work.
