Sermons by Rev. Sian Wiltshire (Page 3)
As we come up on the pagan holiday of Samhain, it seems as if the world kind of stands still for a moment. What does it mean to stand in the liminal space and time? What can it teach us?
We often take the earth and all the resources it offers for granted. What does the earth really mean to us? How can we build a healthy relationship with the Earth?
Learning to listen deeply to who you are called to be in this world is a difficult thing. We have so many voices tugging at our attention—society, family, colleagues. How can we drown out all those voices and listen to the most important voice of all?
What makes a relationship a good one? How do we heal old wounds from past relationships? How do we even heal systemic relationships broken by racism? As our Jewish siblings celebrate Yom Kippur, Rev. Sian will lead us in exploring these questions and more.

Traditionally, congregants bring a small amount of water from a special place. During the appointed time during the service, each person pours the water into a communal vessel and tells why this water is special to them.

The work of the church is essential – for ourselves and our communities.

We live in a unique time, where humanity faces new moral questions. Come explore the answers to these new questions. What is Moral Injury: Feelings of guild and shame as a result of committing an act that violates one’s moral conscience or witnessing a similar act that one was unable or unwilling to prevent. Three Questions: What if fear was taken out of the equation? Whose voice is not being heard? What is love asking of us?
