We are excited to share some of these for our summer adventures:
Tara explores the beautiful notion of death as advisor, drawing from don Juan’s teachings by Carlos Castaneda: “How can anyone feel so important when we know that death is stalking us?” and Rumi in his ponderings of: “What can I do to save myself?…I will make the infinite my home.”
One of the greatest gifts in answering one’s call is that of finding your place of belonging among those who are also answering their calls.
Yesterday I was blessed to be on our Church of the Larger Fellowship (Unitarian Universalist) Affiliated Ministers Zoom video call. We joined together from the Philippines to Philly, the United Kingdom, Germany, Maine, Minnesota, and Washington.
May we continue to be blessed, and to be a blessing to all those we share our creative and unique ministries with.
We had such a fun morning today! Love our granddaughter!!!
This video features a glimpse at nuanced ways of worshipping from unique congregations in a variety of religious denominations including the Church of the Larger Fellowship Unitarian Universalist congregation that began in WWII as a correspondence church providing spiritual support to those stationed overseas. In our modern day, CLF continues its correspondence ministries with larger audiences including more than 1,000 incarcerated church members, and the CLF meets primarily in online spaces serving more than 3,000 congregants. The video also features Historic Old West Church, a Methodist church that is prophetically choosing to go against their denomination’s creed against gay clergy and same sex marriage, and is instead choosing to remain a place where ALL people are welcome.
Soon, soon it will be Springtime, and the green will emerge!
