Is King Safely Dead?

2022 is the 54th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s death. And as our country reckons mightily with our history of racism, we must come to grips with this brave and inconvenient hero. If King’s radical message remains vigorously alive, we must seriously ask what it truly demands of us right here, right now in America.

Annual Fire Communion Service

We will sit in the liminal transition space of the ending of 2021 and the beginning of 2022. This has been a year of reemerging and receding; a back-and-forth year.

We Remember Them

We have lost a lot this year: loved ones, opportunities, and a sense of normalcy. But on this Sunday, Samhain, in many earth-based practices, we take a brief moment to reflect on those who have joined the ancestral realm and the legacy that they leave behind as we move forward into our next normal.
