April 30 – Lessons Learned from PNWD: Listening to Create Beloved Community

Presented by Karen Fothergill

Increasingly, Unitarian Universalist congregations and communities are acting on a longing to bring their faith to everyday life; to live their values everywhere – at home and with friends, in business and politics, in the public square and the market place.
Living an embodied response to this yearning is the basis of Beloved Community.

Karen Fothergill will be sharing a lesson learned from the PNWD conference on Listening to Create Beloved Community. This lesson comes from the Center for Courage and Renewal and the work of Parker Palmer.

“The people who plant the seeds of movements make a critical decision: they decide to live ‘divided no more.’ They decide no longer to act on the outside in a way that contradicts some truth about themselves that they hold deeply on the inside. They decide to claim authentic self-hood and act it out”.

– Parker Palmer

Newcomers of all religious paths or none at all are always welcome. We are handicapped accessible. Please park in the rear of the building. Child care is usually available.

March 11: “Why UUs”

Presented by:  Rev. Elizabeth Greene

EGreeneRev. Greene will be speaking about how important it is for a religious faith to embrace all people, why we need and have a responsibility to help create community for all, and how working for justice is often a result of a commitment to the proposition that all people have some of the Holy within them.

In addition to reflecting on our close-to-home communities and commitments, Rev. Greene’s sermon will include stories of how Unitarians and Universalists have contributed to nurturing souls and helping heal the world.
