The Thing With Feathers”



How to find hope in a dark time, and what to tell the children about the state of the world.  Two poems with different perspectives set up the problem: what promises can we offer the next generation that are both truthful and hopeful? Emily Dickenson’s is “The Thing with Feathers.”

Gonna Trouble the Water:
Escaping Slavery Then and Now Through Native American Wisdom

In this timely sermon, Mi'kmaq descendant longtime UUCR friend Evan Pritchard will connect Black Lives Matter with the standoff at Standing Rock and the current rise of corporate power in America through the sharing of a seemingly simple song, "Wade in the Water." As this award-winning historian unveils the song's many layers of hidden meaning, we will begin to see its references to Moses, Jesus, indigenous healing practices and survival strategies, condolence songs, a belief in miracles, and the universal struggle for freedom and sovereignty shared by all sentient beings.

Spirit in Practice Service No. 4: 



When I read the first 2 paragraphs introducing this topic at UUA.org, it was clear it was mine - it speaks about soul friends, spiritual directors, and sharing journeys. As most of you know, I have been in the Spiritual Guidance Program at Rowe since September 2015, this service will give you a taste of what I have been experiencing - I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

The Generous Heart

Generosity has its roots in gratitude, in courage, and in commitment. The generous heart is awake and aware, living out the values it has embraced. When what you say and what you do match, you have integrity.  As the congregation embarks on our annual pledge drive, we will consider how to cultivate generosity.

Hope 

Hope can be understood as an act of resistance in and of itself. How do we retain hope in a world that so often can feel overwhelming and big? Join us as Rev. Sarah Lenzi leads a discussion about how our Unitarian and Universalist forebears left us a legacy of hope and love to sustain us in dark times.
