As WHUUF begins the process of renewing its Welcoming Congregations Status, Rev. Tracy Springberry will discuss the ways gender identity is changing.
Rev. Tracy Springberry
Rev. Tracy Springberry will help us formally consider the way life changes as we celebrate transitions in our community.
Twenty years after the UUA declared itself an anti-racist, anti-oppression organization, the leadership is still nearly all white men. How is it that an organization made up of people who care passionately about diversity and ending racism and oppression is still led by white people? The answers lead us into the mysteries of privilege and culture that we cannot see. It’s time to learn more about it. Black Lives Unitarian Universalists have asked all UU congregations to devote a Sunday service this spring to these issues in response to the recent conflict at the UUA about hiring practices.
Once upon a time, the Earth was alive and people had a relationship with her, but Western philosophy slowly and surely reduced her to dirt and resources. How do we build a real and meaningful relationship with Earth?
Rev. Springberry will reflect on the ways forgiveness gives us peace, why it is so hard and what we can do to make it easier.
Creation stories are stories cultures tell to explain what is important, how things work, and where the power is. What does the Big Bang/Evolution creation story tell us about what is important, how things work, and where the power is?
We strive to create beloved community inside and outside our walls. What can we do to make this happen?
Giving our life energy is how we stay connected to the great web of life. Today our minister asks us to consider generosity of time and money as a tangible expression of Love.
Often it is not lack of vision or skill, but our fear, that holds us back from being the people we most want to be. This morning Reverend Springberry will help us explore the question “Where do we find courage?”
Today we will celebrate Fire Communion. We will let go of that which no longer serves us and set intentions for the New Year.
