Betwixt and Between

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?

The Earth is Calling

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?

Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are!

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?

We Begin Again in Love

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.

How to Get Your Mojo Back

Trauma occurs in all kinds of ways – small and large. Sometimes to heal from traumas, we need to “come back to ourselves.” Come hear Rev. Sian talk about how we can do that from a shamanic point of view.

Water Communion

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. Due to the challenges of Covid-19, we will be guided through a virtual sharing and the symbolic blending of our faith coming from many different sources.

Transitions

Come explore with Rev. Sian and Rica, our Intern Minister, how we grow, learn, and find the holy in ourselves, others and all that is happening around us.

Moral Injury

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?
