Join us as we explore what this day can teach us about the intersections of play and protect…

What are we, as Unitarian Universalists, to make of the Easter story? This most mystical, miraculous event – the resurrection of Jesus from the dead – that forms the basis for belief for billions of Christians around the globe?

About ten years ago I took up the sport of paragliding. In paragliding you strap yourself into a harness that’s attached to a large fabric wing that enables you to glide and soar through the air like a bird. It’s the closest thing to what I call “pure flying.” There’s no bulky, noisy engine to propel you. It’s just you and the wind. When I started …

After welcoming her back and setting up a time to talk later that morning, here’s what I told her: “I’m completely out of ideas for ‘Imagination’ this week.” And it …
 
Before I begin my remarks on this Martin Luther King Sunday, I want to acknowledge that, for some, Dr. King has become something of an anachronism. A vestige of the past who has little relevance or value to the struggle for Black Lives in the 21st century. There is a sentiment among many of the new generation of powerful and prophetic advocates wit…
 
As I walked down the hospital hallway, I was expecting to find my good friend JP hooked up to an assortment of wires and tubes, semi-conscious at best.

Pardon the pun, but it wa…
