Regardless of how we personally interpret or experience the Holy. Regardless of which individual causes we are most inspired to dedicate time to. Regardless of where we place our priorities on our day-to-day lives. When any among our human family are adrift in turbulent waters of life, spiritually or physically, we are each Called to form such a chain as this. Because we are each other’s saviors. That is why we are here together on this planet.
As we begin to engage in our theological conversations, may we find courage to reveal the windows we find most illuminating, and honor those most illuminating to others, as we share the light of our faith.

Bravo to our UU cousins in the UK who host this annual conference dedicated to exploring our theology.
We so appreciate Rev.Lewis Connelly‘s perspective of embracing “egalitarian imminent spirit” and the importance to not completely detach from our theology, as tends to happen in Unitarian Universalist strides to detach from all creeds and remain non-dogmatic. The overall sense throughout this discussion by the panel, as well as the audience, is about the importance of not forsaking the creation of shared “spiritual” context of our faith, even allowing mysticism in our theology, and the art of telling stories about the divine, and the art of listening to them. Rev. Sheena Gabriel reminds us that our movement has suffered from the lack of good theology, the kind that is an art, and a poetry, and an experience of the heart. She says it is important to bring the head and the heart together through mysticism. Rev. Sarah Tinker points out that our theology is a continual, ongoing process and that happens when we gather together, talk together, explore together.
Beginning this summer at Twinkle’s Place, we look forward to hosting panel discussions and small covenanted group ministries focused on heart based explorations of theology embedded in reason as we open to and access the egalitarian universalist spirit. Gatherings will focus on enhancing our UU spirituality and theological practices through exploration of theologies, philosophies and mysticisms.
Our gatherings will be by-invitation-only at this time. However, if you would like to participate, please email us: TwinkleManning@gmail.com

An exploration about what it means
to belong to one another.
In honor of the lives of those who died as a result of the terrorist attack on September 11th, 2001, and to promote peace in our world, a sacred and prayerful space near the beautiful Sebasticook River will be available for our BikeMaine visitors in Manson Park should any wish to pause for a moment and reflect on this day.
The vigil space hosted by Rev. “Twinkle” Marie Manning will be open from 5:00am-8:00am and have a multi-faith clergy presence.
Additionally, at 7:00am, clergy will share in a collaborative prayer creating a tapestry of love and hope on this day.
