Our “First Sunday” 45-minute worship will follow the monthly topic of “Belonging.” How do we know when we are really included in a group? It’s about creating “just, loving, and creative spaces” in the world.
Speaker: Rev. Douglas Taylor
With atrocities and injustices piling up around the world and in our nation, it can be difficult (even immoral?) to ‘assume best intentions’ when we bump up against each other. What is the fulcrum upon which we balance justice and mercy?
Liberal Theology generally calls us to treat all people with kindness and respect, even those with whom we disagree. Liberation Theology offers a challenging critique, a call to do more than ‘agree to disagree.’ https://douglastaylor.org/2019/09/16/the-gentle-oppressor/
Most years I focus on ‘community’ when putting together our annual Water Ceremony. But notice how precious water is for life. “Mni Wiconi” Remember to bring some water from a place that is special or spiritual for you to share into our common bowl.
