Good Grief

 

The great utterance of the sage, Charlie Brown “good grief” reminds us of what this time of year can hold for many of us. Alongside celebration comes grief for many of us. But what does grief offer us?

A Simple Idea

 

In this month, we will consider the spiritual theme of Simplicity. What does something simple mean to us and how does a faith grow with simplicity in a world that seems so complex? Maybe we need a simple idea.

Side Show

Holding Space

 

In times of pain and times of discernment, we often speak of holding space. Together we will consider what that means to each on of us.

A New Day

As a people, as a nation brace for historical decisions, we consider what new days offer each one of us in our lives.

A Life Lived

 

On this special Sunday we remember the first meeting of our community, and we remember all those who have passed on this year while brightening our lives for so long.

Labor and the way we work stands at the center of so much of our productivity. How do we know if we are working as we should? And what does it cost us if we are not? We will look together at labor this Labor … read more.

When It Doesn’t Matter

The essence of transformation is present in worship. For Unitarian Universalists, our learning, our justice, and then how these come together when we come together, is at the heart of our faith.

When I’m Right

As a faith we try always to be on the right side of history and the right side of the day. A justice seeking people will do this. How does justice work combine with our learning to breed righteousness?

When I’m Wrong

Learning is essential to any life of faith. Sometimes we learn by simply adding new information. But other more painful ways of learning involve being wrong and learning what to do about it.

Pardon the Disruption

From time to time in the lives of so many, disruption changes our plans. This month we consider what disruption might mean to us in our daily lives and our lives of faith. Is it a blessing or a curse? And how do we know … read more.

Cup of Kindness

 

On this Stonewall Sunday we remember and celebrate the power of a generation that united under a banner of shared suffering to force a culture to change, to grow, and to love.

Awful Grace

Grace is something we ask for, something we say, something we offer. We look together about the cost and the value of grace in our own lives and the life of The Beloved Community.
