Rhythms of Life

If we have learned anything in the last year and half, it’s that we never really know what’s coming next, either in the world at large or in our lives as individuals. Whatever our plans might be, life marches on, following the beat of its own drummer. How do we participate in the rhythms of life rather than fighting them?

How to Pray

Prayer means different things to different people. What does it mean to Unitarian Universalist, both historically and contemporarily? Are there ways of praying that might be different from more traditional and orthodox approaches to prayer? What might they look like, and why is prayer worth thinking about?

Water Is Life: Solidarity & Indigenous Activism

The Water Protector movement and other indigenous resistance movements provide not only a useful model for environmental activism and environmental justice, but also a spiritual and religious grounding that can inform and sustain this crucially important work.

In his seminal work, “How to Be an Antiracist,” Ibram X. Kendi puts forth the idea that merely being “not racist” is not enough if we are serious about equity and justice for all. In this service we’ll explore why being “not racist” isn’t enough and what to do instead.

What We Need Is Here

It has been said that, if all of the earth’s resources were shared fairly and equitably, there would be more than enough for all. Is the same true of our spiritual lives? Is there enough for us and for all others? If so, how do we experience this sense of having what we need and how might it affect our work for justice for all?

All Souls

In the Christian tradition, All Souls Day has been a time to remember everyone who has died, everyone who has been part of the gathered community. The phrase “All Souls” has a particularly Unitarian connotation because of something that one of our own “saints,” William Ellery Channing, said: “I am a living member of the great Family of All Souls; and I cannot improve or suffer myself without diffusing good or evil around me through an ever-enlarging sphere. What does it mean for us to be a community of All Souls in the 21st century?
