What I Heard

Rev. Mark Ward,  Lead Minister
Finding one’s voice is challenging these days, especially if that voice is marginalized in our culture. We Unitarian Universalists do our best to make room for every voice, but we, too, fall short. Today we’ll turn to some voices in our midst that invite us to listen a little better, a little more.

Sermon: Centering the Soul (audio and text)

Rev. Mark Ward, Lead Minister
The Trappist monk Thomas Merton once declared that there is in us “a hidden wholeness.” It’s a notion that resounds with us as well, though we puzzle over just what that might be. We’ll play with this idea, what awakening it offers us, and how might we come to know it. click on title to continue.

Abundance

Abundance
When it comes to abundance, our culture and our religion are clearly at odds. Our culture cries, “Accumulate!” Our religion counsels “Appreciate!” The mantras couldn’t be more different: The commercials tell us to “Go out and get what you want!” The pulpits plea with us to “learn to want what you have.”click on title to read more.
