In the Chrysalis: Active Hope
Each of us has experienced a time of not knowing, when we cannot see the path ahead or imagine our next move. Such times of inertia and doubt can lead to despair. But Nature gives us examples of the value of these “fermata” times, threshold moments, and liminal spaces. In them, individuals, communities, and societies transform below the surface: into what is needed next, for the challenges we will face.

Spiritual Survival
The book Deep Survival explores why some people survive trauma and crisis, and others don’t. So many people live in ongoing crisis, and the role of spiritual community is to support life and wholeness. What can we learn from the science of survival, and how does it dovetail with our spiritual lives?

Love’s Hands and Feet
Is it possible for people who crave rationale process and clearly articulated arguments to embrace the principle of
“Embodiment”. Our guest, Rev. Duncan Teague, founding minister of the Abundant LUUv Unitarian Universalist Ministry in Atlanta says loudly, “YES”. This morning he presents his belief that we must embody what we believe and he dares to claim that what we believe in is love that moves and acts.
