Wandering Pilgrimage

Sermon by Rev. Susan Maginn / Led by Diana Heizer A vacation helps us to let go of our familiar lives, giving us a sense of perspective, novelty, respite and renewal. While a pilgrimage is really a spiritual practice, yes stepping away from our present but with the intention of touching the truth of the past while re-dedicating our future toward a holy purpose. But what does a pilgrimage really mean for Unitarian Universalists?

Calling it Quits

Sometimes life throws us challenges that we can learn and grow from – but other times, those curveballs might be not-so-subtle hints that the direction we’re heading isn’t where we’re meant to be. How can we know the difference and be comfortable (and confident) with a decision to call it quits?

An Exploration of Grief

When we talk about grief, it’s usually in the context of losing a loved one, but there are other times when we experience the pain of grief. Today we’ll explore the many ways grief can impact us in very human ways.

Receiving Generously

by Rev. Erica Baron We usually think about giving generously, but we think less often about what it means to receive generously. Since we crave having our gifts seen, acknowledged, confirmed, it is an act of generosity to each other to receive each other’s gifts. Together, we can create communities that notice gifts and celebrate them and give them ways to be expressed.
