Spirit in Practice Service No. 2:

Mind Practices 

Our second theme service explores the intersection of reason and spiritual practice. The spiritual life and the intellectual life do not have to be mutually exclusive. In fact, we may discover that actively involving our minds is essential if we are to have a whole and well-rounded spiritual life.

Who Do I Think I Am?

In the past sixty years, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Rockland has had seasons with professional ministers and seasons of lay leadership. Last year the congregation was lay led. This year you have a new minister. So what difference does it make? What is a minister anyway? What do  ministers do? Rev. Dawn will share how she became a professional minister, and what ministry means to her. Together lay people and ministers create the life of the congregation. What’s your vision of our life together?

Trash Talking: Spirit in Practice

What does spiritual practice look like among Unitarian Universalists? The Board of Worship has chosen “Spirit in Practice” as their organizing theme for 2016-2017.  Each BOW member will offer a service during the coming year on a variation of the theme: mind practices, body practices, soul practices, life practices, justice practices.  Today we will take a walk down Haines Road with Rev. Dawn and consider the spiritual practice of picking up the trash.

How to Survive the Next 36 Days

Our Presidential election is more than a month away, and it feels as if it’s been going on forever. Let’s pause as the campaigns move into their final weeks to reflect on the role of the religious community in political discourse and on our heart’s experience of this year’s campaign. The Rev. Karen Brammer asks, “What in the world does ‘love thy neighbor’ mean in the midst of deep polarization in our communities?” How does our UU faith inform our political decisions and behavior?
