Everywhere, Home, Everyone, Kin

Home deliveries of goods, meals, and services are booming again during the current pandemic.  Many of us remember door-to-door vendors from the years of our childhood, or have experienced them on trips abroad.  This morning I’ll share some of what I learned from watching such vendors at work in Chennai, India, home to generations of vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris’s family.

Indigenous People's Day

The second Monday in October is recognized at the federal level in this country as Columbus Day in honor of the “Discovery of America” by Christopher Columbus. However many municipalities (including Portland) and a number of states have replaced this holiday with an observance of Indigenous People’s Day. In honor of that and inspired by our Social Justice Focus for this church year, in today’s service a group of Wy’east Members and Friends will share their reflections on the first chapter of a proposed “Everybody Reads” book titled An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States (For Young People) which “shatters our understanding of the United States as a land ‘discovered’ in the ‘New World.’”

A Mile in Their Moccasins

“Don’t judge someone until you’ve walked a mile in their moccasins.” You’ve probably heard that expression before, and may have assumed that these are words of Native American wisdom. They’re not, but they have something to teach us about how and why our current season of protest on behalf of racial justice has continued for so long.

Improv For Life

Bring on the joy!  Wy’east member Ruth Jenkins invites all to this fun service to learn how to use games and skills from the world of improvisational theatre to connect, communicate and work together with resilience.  This is NOT about performance. It is focused on listening, accepting, and supporting one another. We will be playing games from applied improv that have been adapted for Zoom.
