Life/Changing: Fall Series Invitation

After experiencing so many changes, we are ready to slow down, and settle in. Regain a sense of predictability, and routine. We are not wired for so much in-between. And yet the world keeps turning. We face threshold upon threshold. Relationships end. Our bodies change. And so many more changes of our lives remain hidden, […]

In Case of Emergency: A letter from Rev. Gretchen

Dear ones,   If you were present in the building for services this past Sunday, you may have noticed a flurry of activity in the entrance area during the sermon, including the arrival of emergency services.  One of our members had a medical emergency which required urgent attention. We are grateful to report that this […]

Flower Communion 2022: More Than You Know

Every person contains contradictions and complexities beyond what you might ever imagine. Even you. There are parts of ourselves that lay dormant or emerge at different stages of our lives and can come as a big surprise when they do. One of the gifts of a diverse, multi-generational community is that through relationship we can […]

Invitation to Regeneration

It’s been a pretty rough stretch these last few months. The war and devastation in Ukraine, the rise of anti-LGBTQ legislation and rhetoric, the worsening news of our climate – without any visible will to change – and, of course, the pandemic, which lingers both in cases and in financial, emotional, and spiritual impact. In […]

Living with Ghosts

The school board election this week – and the long months preceding it – reminded us again just how difficult it has become to talk to one another when we disagree.

Over the next six Sundays we’ve invited Unitarian Universalist colleagues from all across the country to share their UU message of good news for today. Each of our colleagues responded to this invitation in their own way, locating hope in a different source, and yet still grounded in the living tradition of Unitarian Universalism.

Thoughts on “Re-Opening”

It’s been a difficult week of news. We crossed the grim milestone of 100,000 deaths from COVID19, and stories of racialized violence and injustice echo across the country. None of this is a surprise, exactly.  But that doesn’t make it any less devastating, or wrong.

News About Re-Opening

As we prepare for our 10th online service, there’s a lot about our Sundays that has started to feel really good, and connective. And yet…every week that goes by I wonder “how much longer before we can be together again?” I know I’m not alone.

Your Brain on Lockdown

In mid-March, I remember thinking: by the end of April, we’ll know a lot more. Ha! Here we are, a week into May, and although we know some more about some things, a lot of other things are now questions! And it feels like it’ll be a LONG time before we will really know much for sure. We are learning (or trying to!) how to live with extended uncertainty.
