To Be Continued: Water Wisdom

Dear Ones, After last Sunday’s Water Ceremony, I was asked if I could publish the meditation created by everyone’s writings on water, which was read as we poured our waters into the common bowl. Someone else suggested it could be my column this week. I am delighted to offer those words here! Thank you, everyone […]

To Be Continued: Evacuation

Dear Ones, As I write this Hurricane Dorian has devastated the Bahamas, and is just about to reach the southeast coast of Florida. A mandatory evacuation order has been in place for the coastal counties of South Carolina for almost 24 hours. Nursing homes are being evacuated. My UU Coastal Clergy group has cancelled this […]

To Be Continued: Labor Day Approaches

Dear Ones, With this coming Monday, summer is “over.” Labor Day is the traditional end to summer, though children now return to school well before the beginning of September in most places. The beginning of September still brings a sense of expectation to my soul. As a child, I reveled in new crayons, new pencils, […]

To Be Continued: Covenant Service Follow-Up

Dear Ones, I want to thank everyone who was present at the service this past Sunday (Aug. 11th) for their wonderful discussions of questions about our UUFB covenant, and their comments afterward! One comment I wanted to highlight was that some of it boils down to “don’t gossip.” It seems simplistic, and yet, that’s exactly […]

To Be Continued: Coming In September

Dear Ones, As our summer moves toward its end, I want to highlight a couple things coming up in September. The theme for September is “Expectation,” and I’m brimming with anticipation already. On September 8th we will celebrate our annual Water Service. If you have water to share from summer adventures, great! If you have […]

To Be Continued: Third Anniversary

Dear Ones, Can you believe it’s August already? Before you know it, our sun bird members who fly away to the (usually) cooler north will be coming back. Before you know it, we will be celebrating our Ingathering Water Service on September 8th. You’re invited, as always, to bring a small amount of water from […]

To Be Continued: SUUSI

Dear Ones, I have just returned from attending SUUSI – Southeast UU Summer Institute – in Cullowhee, NC. Over 1,000 Unitarian Universalists from all over the country – as well as a handful from Canada and the UK – were there for a week of living in intentional community with other UUs.

To Be Continued: After General Assembly

Dear Ones, In our service this past Sunday I mentioned the conversations that were held at General Assembly, and how delegates were asked to bring them back to their congregations for consideration and further conversation. Here are those questions – and I note that one of the questions I didn’t attempt to answer in the […]
