Lessons Learned from the Book “White Fragility”

This service is based on the first book in a series of readings presented by our Social Justice Group to promote deeper understanding of racial justice issues. What is meant by White Fragility? Why is it so hard for many white people to talk about racism? Robin Diangelo’s book shares insights and knowledge gained from years of racial awareness workshops. Join us for an opportunity to look into and discuss this very important work.

“The Practice of Peace” • Rev. Kristin Maier

What if peace wasn’t a state that we achieve, but a practice we could engage any time we turned our attention to it? How might our hearts, lives, communities be changed by practicing peace again, and again, and yet again?

“A Homestyle Candlelit Christmas Eve Service” • Rev. Kristin Maier

From the comfort of our own homes, we will connect with one another and the magic of Christmas through a blend of traditional and contemporary readings, stories and music.

“Burning Bowl Service” • Speaker: Paul Krause

The "Burning Bowl" service. A service of letting go of all those things that no longer serve us. Although no bowls will be burned, Paul Krause will fire up the ritual. The service will feature several short stories presented by members. Each story will center on a time in the member's life when a significant transformation was attempted and made. Music and song appropriate for the occasion.
