Have a few minutes? Let your day take a new, positive turn by listening to this uplifting sermon on the value of embracing our imperfections and letting go of judgment by Rabbi Scott Hausman-Weiss.

Here is the full text of the opening reading in the sermon:

“Spiritual Fitness”

If you can start the day without caffeine or pep pills,
If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches & pains,
If you can resist complaining & boring people with your troubles,
If you can understand when loved ones are too busy to give you time,
If you can overlook when people take things out on you when, through no fault of yours, something goes wrong,
If you can take criticism & blame without resentment,
If you can face the world without lies & deceit,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs…

Then you are probably a dog.
