May 3 - On the Path to Oneness: Making Meaning Together
Rev. Greg MartinLife comes at us fast! We can't always discern whether something is good or bad in the moment because we lack a larger perspective. As Unitarian Universalists who embrace life in all of its dimensions, we bring meaning to our situation and seek to shape our experiences for the greater good. Today, we begin the journey to commit ourselves to this new path together.
May 10 - The Direction of Your Dreams
Rev. Greg MartinToday we "clasp the hands of those that go before us," - the Transcendentalists - figures like Margaret Fuller, Henry David Thoreau, and their common mentor, Ralph Waldo Emerson. Rev. Greg Martin invites us to consider these voices as we face the challenges and opportunities of being Unitarian Universalists for the 21st century. As we advance confidently in the direction of our dreams, we dance within "the larger circle of all creatures," as poet Wendell Berry notes, and reach for "the hands of those who come after us."
