The saying “It Takes a Village” has always been a pillar of our spiritual community and a popular sentiment in American culture but lately it’s been difficult to feel the presence of a thriving interdependent village. This week, we’ll talk about what the idea of a village means to us, and how we can work to strengthen our chosen village moving forward.
With the possible overturning of Roe vs. Wade in the coming weeks, the question of bodily autonomy is once again at the forefront of our national debate. We’ll be exploring the history of Roe vs. Wade and the bodily rights granted to us by the Constitution along with delving into the questions of who does my body belong to and what rights do I (and others) have over it from a moral, ethical, and legal perspective?
As we celebrate Mother’s Day, we’ll be exploring some fictional mothers that can serve as both role-models and surrogates (for those who’s mothers left something to be desired).

As a community of people rooted in compassion, in a world of seemingly endless causes, how do we possibly manage to focus our time, energy and resources to effectively make a change without completely burning ourselves out? This service, we’ll talk about Activism Fatigue and how to deal with the overwhelm
The melt and rain are arriving, warmer breezes blow, birdsong returns. Spring is, as they say, blossoming. During dark times, winter’s retreat helps ground us in what is around us in our physical spaces. Grounding in the now can help ease the fear and anxiety that surrounds us. Come, breathe, and join us at our Spring Equinox service, followed by a reflective walk through our beloved labyrinth.
Have you ever noticed a small hopefully flower growing out of a crack in the concrete? What joy it brings!
