One Meal With Grace, One Without

For many of us, Thanksgiving is the only meal each year for which we “say grace”.  Is this because it’s the only time we eat turkey, or is there another reason? This morning, Rev. Craig Moro will describe a meal without either turkey or grace that nearly ended in disaster.  We will also dedicate our Joys and Sorrows time to thanking the many people who dedicate themselves to making the Wy’east experience happen!

Veterans' Day: Reflections on Service and Faith

This second Sunday in November falls on Veterans' Day (formerly Armistice Day).  Wy'east members reflect on military service and faith, considering questions like how do they reconcile their liberal faith with military service?  What is it like to be a person of liberal faith while serving?  Patriotism:  Why isn't it considered a "liberal" value in public discourse? and What called you to serve?

Black Lives UU: The conversation continues …

Please join us for our 3rd Black Lives of UU Service, organized in response to a call in April 2017 from the BLUU Organizing Collective.  Many Wy'easters have worked together to understand the materials recommended by them and to create a service that answers their mandate to lift up black voices. Together, we'll listen to those voices as we contemplate what it might mean to show up for black lives, both within our congregation and in the wider world.  Service led by Wy'east Members.

Lions & Tigers & Self-Singing Songs

Let’s visit the land of Oz with Dorothy and her friends as we contemplate what it means to affirm and promote our third UU principle, “acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth.” Can we help each other break the spells and enchantments that have poisoned our public discourse with so much fear and anger?  Join Rev. Craig Moro on this walk down the yellow brick road.

Transforming Our Justice System: A Conversation About Accountability and Healing

What if our public safety system prioritized accountability over punishment? Is it possible to transform our current system from one that ostracizes to one that repairs?

Hmmm...

"Nine-eleven”—as we have come to call the events of September 11, 2001—had its 17th  anniversary last week. What did those events teach us about violence and “religion”?  What have we done to try and learn more?  Service led by Rev. Craig Moro
