The Wisdom of Crowds

April 8, 2018

In 1907, Francis Galton showed that a crowd was better able to guess the weight of an Ox than any single person in it.  What other unexpected skill emerge when we work together rather than as a collection of individuals?

Equinox

March 25, 2018

Spring has arrived!  Astronomically, at least.  This Sunday we celebrate green and growing things, and the cycles of nature that refresh and balance our lives.  We also reflect on the lessons of the March for Our Lives, and what might emerge from a moment where the balance seems to be starting to tip.

Self Care

March 18, 2018

“Put your own oxygen mask on first” is sound practical advice, but in the midst of noise and anxiety, very hard to do.  How do we set our intentions, in order to take care of ourselves that we may take care of others?

Free and Responsible

March 11, 2018

Our fourth principle calls us to the “free and responsible search for truth and meaning.”  On this Sunday when we welcome members who have joined us in the last year, we reflect on that search.

Roots and Wings

March 4, 2018

“Roots hold me close, wings set me free” goes the one of our better known hymns.  How do we balance the roots of Unitarian Universalism with the wings setting us toward new horizons?

Creatively Maladjusted

February 19, 2018

Martin Luther King wrote that "...there are certain things in our nation and in the world which I am proud to be maladjusted."  It can be easy to adjust ourselves to injustices in the world, writing them off as "just the way things are."  How can we push back against this complacency, and remain maladjusted?

Content Note:  Discussion of gun violence, school shootings.

That Which Abides

February 5, 2018

Our theme this February is persistence.  We’ll talk this morning about the things that persist, that abide from generation to generation.  What makes certain actions and beliefs persist, despite everything?

The Joy of Small Things

January 21, 2018

From guest preacher Jack Gaede:  In the chaos, bustle, and hurry of the winter season, where are you finding peace, stillness, and simplicity? Many of our poets and teachers speak of small things— of the mundane, and they often find such joy and contentment there. What are the small things in your life? Where do you find your simple joys?

Anchored Beyond the Horizon

December 3, 2017

This first Sunday of Advent, two days after World AIDS Day, we gather to ask what it means to be a people of hope.  We live in the hope of a better world, built by human hands.  But that better world can seem far from our lived reality at times.  How do we remain anchored to a vision of hope in an unhopeful time?
