This is from the bound collection — “bundle #4” — that includes sermons from February 14, 1909 to December 26, 1909.

In this sermon, Davis argues for paying attention to the sacred aspects of everyday life, and not just the uncommon, astounding, or perhaps miraculous. The Ralph Waldo Emerson poem "The Rhodora"is quoted in full, while the James Russell Lowell poem "The Vision of Sir Launfal" is also referenced.
