The Rev. David R. Weissbard
I’ll reflect on covenants of marriage and friendship. In our relationships with those we love, the practice of covenant is essential.
What’s the difference between being covered by a creed (I believe . . . ) and a covenant (we will . . .)? What does it mean to be part of a covenantal faith? How might such a theology shape our lives, our dreams, our politics, and our relationship with the holy?
Reflections on the dignity of work, economic justice, globalization, unionization, and such things. How can we ensure all who work have dignity in whatever they do?
"This August marks 25 years at war for the United States. Come and explore the complex topic of how UU’s can act as people of conscious for peace while also more deeply engaging with and welcoming the veterans, military members and their families who give so much for our nation."
"Spoiler alert! Love wins. It's been a summer of hard news in the world, or so it seems. But maybe that's just because we haven't been looking in the right places. Let's talk about what's right with this world. Rose-colored glasses encouraged."
"What does it really mean to be an ally, an advocate, and a friend to someone who is oppressed? There's a story in the Christian New Testament about some friends of a person with disabilities who staged some radical advocacy on his behalf. We'll talk about it and reflect on how that can apply to us today, if we choose it."
"There is no wrong way to have a body." -Glenn Marla
Our bodies are sacred, blessed, and beautiful just the way we are. Come join us for for embodied worship, thoughtful meditation, and permission to love ourselves and each other in the bodies we have right now.
What can our nation look like if we love each other the way we loved Muhammad Ali? Why did America allow itself to unequivocally love this man who embodies so much of what large factions of us now fear and despise? What does our reverence at his death mean about who we are?
