"The Laughing Buddha," 7/3/2016

The Rev. Kent McKusick is the guest speaker today: Laughter is a healing spiritual practice. Laughter yoga was developed and shared as a practice in the 1990s. Experience laughter without the benefit of humor, jokes or comedy. As the Rev. Linda Anderson tells us, “Laughter ... affects our bodies, our minds, our emotions and our spirits in a healing, connecting, and health-promoting way. Laughter is a spiritual practice. Cultivating a sense of humor in response to life is something we can choose to do. When I laugh, I feel happy. I can forgive myself and others more easily when I can laugh at myself. ... When I can laugh I can lighten the blues and feel less isolated. If I muster up some humor I feel stronger, more competent and capable of weathering what life has to offer.” 

"Some People ...", 5/22/2016

Join Rev. DeBeck and Jenny Peek, a newly graduated holder of a Masters Degree in Divinity, for this special sermon duet. Some people are in our lives but for a time; these two ministers lift up the sacredness of relationship. 

"Before Selma ... and Beyond," 4/10/2016

Our minister emeritus, Gordon Gibson, will be sharing with us some of what he learned in thinking through and writing his book published last year about southern Unitarians and Universalists in the civil rights era. Their concerns began well before the rest of the nation briefly took an interest in Selma, Ala., and their concerns and work continued on beyond Selma.
