Land Acknowledgement

 
What does it mean to be on land that did not belong to our ancestors? What does it mean that living and gardening and working and loving this land is spiritual and redemptive for so many of us? Can we heal the relationships with those our ancestors wronged?

Brave Space

 
There is a difference between comfort and safety. Safe space means were are in a place where no harm is being done to us. Comfortable space means that we are not being challenged. Finding the balance between comfort and safety can be an impossible task, but one that is necessary if we want to create space that is open and healthy for everyone. Knowing that constant comfort won’t bring spiritual growth, and safe space isn’t always possible, may we endeavor to create Brave space.

We Belong Together

 
Belonging is a basic human need. We identify ourselves by who we belong with, as members of families, residents of town or cities, and members of political parties, churches, and possibly baseball teams. At the service today, we will explore what “belonging” to a religious community can mean, explicitly and implicitly, and consider why the experience of “belonging” can be transformative in some cases, and meaningless in others.

Honoring Our Ancestors: Samhain, All Saint’s Day, All Hallow’s Eve,

Dias de los Muertos

 
Many cultures recognize that this is the time of the year when the world feels a bit spooky. People say the veil between the worlds grows thin and we can connect with loved ones that have moved on from this life. Today we honor our loved ones past. Please bring a memento of one of your ancestors, as we build an altar to honor them.
