July 18, 2021- A Prophetic Encounter: Have You Had One Lately? - Rev. Karen Hutt

Monday, July 19th, 2021

Prophets are often treated like icons. How many prophetic people can you rattle off the names of? What characteristics do they display? Our 2nd Source as UU’s provides us with some interesting human centered guidance, if we parse the words enough and dive deeply. This Sunday, we continue to learn how to walk the walk that we talk of so much.

July 11, 2021- Cinnamon Sticks and God- Jill Braithwaite

Monday, July 12th, 2021

Radical acceptance, as defined by Buddhist teacher Tara Brach, is the spiritual practice of accepting reality exactly as it is, without trying to control or judge or pull away. When we’re feeling stuck and unable to make a change, radical acceptance can help us move forward. Join Jill Braithwaite for a reflection on what can happen when we step into radical acceptance and let go.

Jill Braithwaite has been a member of First Universalist Church since 2004. She has an M.A. in theology and the arts from United Theological Seminary and is currently studying there in the Master of Divinity program with a concentration in UU Studies.
