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 […]

Stories [E. Piez]

Wednesday, November 2, 2016

Stories are powerful. They can heal, teach, or guide us in a direction. Stories can also limit us. Sometimes a story that has served us well for a long time comes to the end of its usefulness. Sometimes – as the novel and musical Wicked reminds us – we hear a familiar story from a […]

Healing [CLT]

Wednesday, October 5, 2016

This month our theme we are considering at UUCA is “Healing.” We’ll be exploring all the ways our world, our relationships, and our bodies, and our hearts need healing and how we might begin that work. As I pondered what to say in this blog article today, I realize my heart has been heavy with […]

Covenant [FM]

Wednesday, September 7, 2016

   Our Unitarian Universalist “Principles” begin with these words: “We the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association covenant to affirm and promote …” (my emphasis added). I know that there are residential communities/neighborhoods where covenants are leveraged as rules and rights; but, this isn’t usually the meaning of “covenant” in faith communities. “Covenant” is […]
