    It is good to be back with you! As I write this I am not yet caught up with all that has happened at UUCPA during the past six months. However, Mary is leaving me lots of information from her busy time here, and by the time you read this, I will have met with ...

    Dear ones, you have all the information about the who and what and how long about sabbatical, and more is in the sabbatical guide that is posted online and in the Main Hall pamphlet rack, so I won’t belabor the point. I just want you to know that I will miss you during these months away. ...

      It’s hard to believe, but I will be leaving for Mexico in just six weeks. My six-month sabbatical begins July 1, and I’ll be taking my annual study leave from June 4 to 30. So what will that time look like? Here at UUCPA, very much as usual. We have a terrific lineup of services from ...

    On the 50th anniversary of Selma in March, when I asked people to cross the bridge to a better world by committing to an action they would take for racial justice, I chose two for myself. The first was to read lots of African-American history, fiction, and poetry — so little has been part of my ...

    I have a little note here from last year: a child at church asked in passion- ate terms why we were replacing our labyrinth, which they thought was more interesting and unique than the brick one, and why we were taking out so many juniper bushes where creatures lived. I had mixed feelings about those ...

    Where did our benediction come from? Dan and I were talking one day about different ways to end the service. For a long time it has ended with applause, which feels like a strange sound to have ringing in our ears as we leave—as if we have been to a performance. I wanted something that ...
