Rest Is Resistance

There is a lot of attention on Self-Care in our society. Exhaustion is seen as a mark of status, and being busy is a sign of success. But should rest and renewal be a luxury allowed to only those who can afford it? We hope to see you in person! Our COVID policy has been … Continue reading Rest Is Resistance

Thus Do We Covenant

The concept of ‘Covenant’ is deeply counter-cultural. There are few examples in our society’s shared experience we can point to that demonstrate how a covenant works. We have lots of examples of what it is not: it is not a contract, rule, or a way to judge who is right and who is wrong. While … Continue reading Thus Do We Covenant

Our COVID policy has been suspended and masking … Continue reading A Life of Ritual and Reason

Our groups strengthen the heart of our community through meaning-making and simple friendships. We hope to see you in person! Our COVID policy has been suspended … Continue reading The Taming of Foxes

The War on Truth

Winston Churchill is credited with the witticism: ‘A Lie Is Halfway Round the World Before the Truth Has Got Its Boots On.’ Ironically, Churchill may not be the originator of that line. But the problem we face in our society is more pernicious than mere ‘Churchillian Drift!’ Lies and disinformation are eroding our reality with … Continue reading The War on Truth

Roadmap for Repair

Forgiveness and repentance are an annual theme for us. This year, the UUA Common Read is a book about the topic: On Repentance and Repair by Danya Ruttenberg. Join me in considering a very old outline for how to move forward after an experience of harm. We hope to see you in person! Our COVID … Continue reading Roadmap for Repair

Let Our Service Begin

The Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore wrote, “I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.” Is there an element of service in your life? In our congregation? In what ways do we serve needs greater than our own? We hope to … Continue reading Let Our Service Begin
