Upcoming Services 10:30 am, Zoom.
May Theme is Mindfulness
May 2, 2021, Dr. Andrew Tripp Preaching on mindfulness meditation. In meditation our minds are not like vacuums, void of content. Rather, it is a place where we recognize what our thoughts and feelings are, keeping our emotions and perceptions in the present without judgment on them. We will practice mindfulness based meditations in the service to put in practice approachable forms of spirituality.
May 9, 2021, Megan Visser, An Ode to Pandemic ParentsIn our personal lives and communities, we honor parents and grandparents in many different ways -- on special days of the year and in other acts of praises. Yet, the COVID-19 pandemic has shown the ways in which US policy and programs have failed to adequately support parents and families. Unpaid labor caring for children also falls most heavily on women. On this Mother’s Day, how do we translate our love of mothering into social action? Beyond the praises of the day, how might we improve our care for parents in our communities? Join Rev. Megan in a service of love for mothering in all its forms through words, ritual, and music.
May 16, 2021,Dr. Andrew Tripp Preaching on “Stress Robbing Us of the Present.” The pandemic brought to our attention how much our executive function is impacted by stress. The ever-present flood of negative news flows over us and takes us away from our current context. Anxiety races our mind to the future, but we only have control over the present. Good judgement, clear headed thoughts, these require us to intentionally return to our centering practices. Returning our thoughts and minds from our stresses to the present is something we must to again and again.
