Norman’s Sermon in A River Runs Through It
(Columbia pictures)

Each one of us here today will, at one time in our lives, look upon a loved one who was in need and ask the same question.

We are willing to help, Lord, but what, if anything, is needed?

Either we don’t know what part of ourselves to give,

Or, more often than not, the part we have to give is not wanted.

And so it is, those we live with, and should know, who elude us.

But we can still love them.

We can love completely without complete understanding.
