Courage [FM]

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

I read and hear a lot about courage now days, such as this quote: When will people of courage stand up for what is right? Quotes of this sort are often about politics. A recent op-ed piece by four clergy spoke to this kind of courage too – they write about an issue that we […]

Welcome, welcome! We are heading into a new church year, fall is approaching, and so we are moving out of easy summer living and into the challenge of new transitions. As you all know, Rev.

Saying Goodbye [EP]

Tuesday, July 4, 2017

     Why is it that the moment we know we must get ready to say goodbye, everything seems to get extra busy? The month of July is filled with exciting activities that I am looking forward to. I will lead the worship services on July 9 and 30, and I’m excited that the service […]

Joy & Woe Are Woven Fine (CLT)

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

The great poet William Blake is quoted in our gray hymnal (Singing the Living Tradition #17) with these words, “Joy and woe are woven fine, clothing for the soul divine: under every grief and pine runs a joy with silken twine. It is right it should be so: we were made for joy and woe; […]

Embodiment (FM)

Wednesday, May 3, 2017

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” ― Mahatma Gandhi All religious faith’s hold a vision of life as it could be, as it ought to be.  In some cases – maybe even in most of them – there are creeds, dogmas and rituals that support the vision; there may even […]

Big T versus Little T (RevJC)

Sunday, April 9, 2017

Our theme this month is transformation and when I think about what that means, it feels BIG—life-changing big; and in this month of April with Easter Sunday it feels even bigger.  Transformation and Easter makes me think of words like resurrection, rebirth, renewal and release.  Each word deserves its own story but for the sake […]

What Calls Us to Risk? (EP)

Wednesday, March 1, 2017

 I didn’t attend the women’s march on the day after inauguration, but I did attend a protest at the inauguration itself. I joined a group that was officially permitted to demonstrate non-violent resistance on the parade route across from the National Archives. This felt risky. And I felt called to be there. I was called […]

Religious Identity (CLT)

Tuesday, February 7, 2017

This month we’re talking about Identity. I’ve been thinking a lot about religious identity, and particularly what it means to have a Unitarian Universalist religious identity. A few years ago I was asked to help lead the “Synergy” worship service at General Assembly. This is the service where the youth who are leaving their high-school […]

UUCA as a Prophetic Community (FM)

Tuesday, January 3, 2017

The prophetic liberal church is the church in which all members share the common responsibility to attempt to foresee the consequences of human behavior (both individual and institutional), with the intention of making history in place of merely being pushed around by it. Only through the prophetism of all believers can we together foresee doom […]

You Were Made to Give Hope (JTC)

Tuesday, December 6, 2016

It’s the holiday season and I think it’s timely that I share with you a chapter from my most recent book You Were Made for So Much More.  In this chapter I discuss hope and the Jesus story–an appropriate message for our time when many feel hopeless.  Please enjoy…   If you like what you […]
