Sermons by Rev. Sian Wiltshire (Page 3)
The science of snowflakes and the uniqueness of you.
As we come upon the holiday season, still in the depths of COVID19, how do we do “holidays” now? And how do we both mourn what was, and embrace what is?
Star Trek is one of the most popular and profitable franchises in the history of television and movies. Why? What does the story of our future reveal about us in the present?
So, it’s after a very contentious election. What now? How do we continue the work of healing the pain that has divided our country?
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.
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.
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.
The work of the church is essential – for ourselves and our communities.
