Past Service: Generosity of Spirit (and Botany)

Service led by: Rev. Sarah Skochko

An alert goes out, and all around the world, no matter what time it is, dozens of botanists stop what they’re doing and take out their cell phones to look at a picture. Somewhere on earth, a child has eaten a plant that doctors can’t identify. Can anyone help? As it happens, these botanists might be the only people who can. What motivates any of us to be generous with our time, our talents, and our knowledge of obscure berries?
