Better Together

Rev. Shana Lynngood with Worship Associate Larry Boldt –

Our North American mindset frequently leads us to turn toward individualism. We go it alone all too often.

How different would our world be if instead we were inclined toward seeing our selves and our lives as richer in meaning by finding the ways and places where we connect. What if we go it together?

Healing in the Hard, Hard Times

Christopher Wulff, Ministerial Intern, with Worship Associate Madelaine Clarke –

“Upon the table she lay. We spoke words. We sang songs. We wrapped her and we wept over her. In this place and in this time, we were not alone.”

In the hardest times, we need one another the most and yet we often struggle to know what to do. How do we learn to sit in the space of sorrow and hold another, to offer healing when loss is most profound?

How will we choose to heal the world?

Compassion, Kindness, and Generosity of Spirit

Rev. Melora Lynngood with Worship Associate Oliver Belisle –

The mission of our congregation is to “transform ourselves and our world through compassionate action.”  Our congregations are like dojos for practicing this becoming.

Even as imperfect and wounded people ourselves, how do we become forces of healing ––  in our own lives and in the larger world?

International Healing? Seeking Hope

Rev. Melora Lynngood with Worship Associate: Doug McGinnis ––

So much violence and suffering in our world, much of it due to human-made international and political conflict. What human-made healing is possible?

October 24 is United Nations Day. This Sunday we lift up the work of our Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office (UU-UNO), and we look at the broader question of how to find hope in the face of international events that cause us to despair.

The Healing Power of Us

Rev. Shana Lynngood  with Worship Associate Anna Isaacs ––

Often when we envision healing we picture an individual taking steps to get well physically or emotionally after a challenging time.

There is also a collective or communal healing that can take place when a person feels nourished or held by a community, and when a group of people work to make the world a more hospitable place.

Come explore this dimension of healing as we begin the month exploring this theme.

Covenantal Relationship: Trying Again, and Again, and Again .

Rev. Melora Lynngood with Worship Associate Larry Boldt –

Parenting, marriage, friendship, congregational life – our relationships of covenant call us to return to our best selves again and again and again and again… in the face of the unknown, as imperfect human beings, and with imperfect human tools.

Not always easy to do. But worth the striving. And better with the support of community.

Remaking Promises

Christopher Wulff with Worship Associate Oliver Belisle – Jewish philosopher Martin Buber speaks of humans as promise-making, promise-breaking, promise re-making creatures; the making of promises and commitments Buber sees as essential to human nature.

What promises or commitments does our faith call us to offer the world? How do we keep our covenants alive, and who do we include within them?

Shaped by Our Promises

Rev. Shana Lynngood with Worship Associate Doug McGinnis –

This Ingathering Sunday, when we return to a new program year in the life of our church community, we will examine the theme of promise.

In many ways our lives are profoundly impacted by those ideas, ideals, and people to whom we have made promises.

Our commitments and covenants offer us a sense of path and a course to follow. What promises shape your life? How much promise do your promises hold?
