A Time of Miracles

Rebirth in the natural world can nourish us in this season of Passover and Easter as the old stories about Moses and Jesus instruct us still.. Miracles were an intellectual problem for Thomas Jefferson, who rewrote the gospels to leave them out, but even the most rational and skeptical among us has been visited by more miracles than we can count. The gift of your life, for example.

The Great Turning:

Meeting change with an open heart. 

We are in the midst of profound changes and challenges—environmental and societal.  How do we respond? Do we retreat into fear and distrust and denial? Or can we find ways to move through and beyond our fears and respond with courage, creativity, and compassion?

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.
