May 19: “Something Else from Nothing But” with Ministerial Intern, Rebecca Gant

May 19 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Throughout history, creation stories have helped humans make sense of the origin of life on our planet. Unitarian Universalists do not have a common creation story, but we do share a faith in science and its explanations. Religious naturalism, a religious orientation at the intersection of science and religion, has a story to explain the existence of life: emergence. How can this understanding of how things come to be affect our lives? Where are new ideas emerging in today’s world?…

May 26: “Against My Religion” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons

May 26 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

The recent passage by the Missouri legislature of draconian limitations to women’s reproductive health options demands a response from people of faith. The questions of when and how life begins, and when and how it ends, as well as our responsibilities as stewards of those processes, are profoundly religious questions. But that does not mean that there is only one perspective that arises out of the religious considerations, and it is time for those who support the autonomy and moral…

June 9: “The Opposite of Connection” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons

June 9 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

The community of those who study addiction, and those who wrestle with it in practice, is grappling with a new paradigm -- the saying goes, “The opposite of addiction is not sobriety; it is connection.” Our intuitions may not always be good guides to happiness, while meaning, purpose, transcendence and connection offer a more reliable path, as well as healing from the trauma we may not even know is affecting us. This is why, no matter what your preferred religious…

June 16: “Fortifying Legacies” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons

June 16 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Communities unite around stories, and stories teach us who we are. The strongest communities are those with the most robust collections of histories and legends, offering a complex, ambiguous, multi-faceted identity that fosters diversity as well as connection. When we simplify actual stories into comfortable mythology, we impoverish our memories, our identities, and our communities. On this Father’s Day, and Juneteenth remembrance, how do the stories we carry about our families, and about our nation, and about our resistance, strengthen…
