Rev. Tracy Springberry

Reconsidering Identity

As WHUUF begins the process of renewing its Welcoming Congregations Status, Rev. Tracy Springberry will discuss the ways gender identity is changing.

White Privilege? White Supremacy Culture? What is That?

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.

The Earth Who Makes our Lives Possible

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?

The Peace of Forgiveness

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.

The Greatest Epic

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?

Creating the Beloved Community

We strive to create beloved community inside and outside our walls.  What can we do to make this happen?

Why Give?

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.

Finding the Courage to Shine

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?”

Fire Communion

Today we will celebrate Fire Communion.  We will let go of that which no longer serves us and set intentions for the New Year.
