  • March 1 “Poetry & Spirit” Service

    Poetry, at its best, reaches beyond and beneath our rational minds and material world into a realm of intuition and insight, of something higher and deeper than the superficial world of everyday reality.  It pierces through stale and tired appearances, conventional thinking and perception, and gives us flashes of the untarnished beauty, tragedy, challenge, and […]

  • Second Circle Teen Movies

    Selections for the first half of the calendar year for Second Circle Movie Night have been laid out and were announced at our January meeting.  Titles were nominated by the teens and those chosen reflect or raise issues related to our UU principles and present good themes for discussion.

  • Beginner’s Mind

    Zen Buddhism has a concept called “Beginner’s Mind”. They say, “In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few.” Transitions are a time when our conceptions of what is possible are challenged, either directly or indirectly simply because a change of ministers is occurring. The best question we can […]

  • Surprised by Joy

    Just when life looks the bleakest, sometimes an insight or small act of kindness can restore our faith in our own life. A woman I know was telling me about feeling very down about all the many problems she is juggling and not having time to just breathe and enjoy anything. She decided to take […]
