Cynefin – Our Place In the World

Today, we will give gratitude and share a Bread Communion in the Spirit of Cynefin, a Welsh word meaning ‘place’ or ‘habitat,’  – but really, so much more than that.

Leaving a Legacy

What are the legacies we receive? What are the legacies we hope to give? With a story from WWII, we will reflect on our legacy for ourselves and as a religious community.

Our Beloved Dead

In keeping with the practices of faiths and cultures worldwide, we will observe a remembrance of our beloved dead. Please bring pictures and/or mementos of those dear to you who have passed – family, friends, animals. We will build an altar and reflect on our memories.

Justice and Peace in Palestine

Last year, Sharon went to the Palestinian territories of East Jerusalem and the West Bank with the Interfaith Peace Builders. Sharon’s group met with Palestinian and Israelis justice advocates – people who have seen 1st hand the reality of Palestinians lives are unrelenting advocates for change and peace.

Faith Floods the Desert

Today, Cyndi will share the deeper story, the heart, of her trip to Arizona to leave water for migrants in the vast Sonoran desert of southern Arizona. What happens to the migrants who cross this deadly area? What happened to those who came to participate in this civil disobedience?

The Doctrine of Discovery

Today, in reflection on Columbus Day, we consider the religious doctrine that fueled much of the European conquest of the western Hemisphere. And we will consider what responses might be appropriate and helpful for us as citizens of this hemisphere and as Unitarian Universalists.
