A short reflection I wrote for Sunday worship that inadvertently, organically became an argument in favor of expanding our First Principle. #UU

[People brought up in a Judeo-Christian worldview] regard the universe as different and separate from themselves – that is, as a system of external objects which needs to be subjugated.

Taoists view the universe as the same as, or inseparable from, themselves so that Lao-tzu could say, “Without leaving my house, I know the whole universe.”

"By the time I found Buddhist sanghas in the West I had become defiantly antagonistic at any hint of cultural co-opting. Suffice to say the Buddhism I met in Canada and through American writings was a far star from the Buddhism of my Buddhist grandmother. In these communities, I found a strange brew of attempts at inclusion without any consideration that belongingness is a variegated experience and profoundly individual."

"It occurred to me that there were two sets of virtues, the résumé virtues and the eulogy virtues. ...

We all know that the eulogy virtues are more important than the résumé ones. But our culture and our educational systems spend more time teaching the skills and strategies you need for career success than the qualities you need to radiate that sort of inner light. Many of us are clearer on how to build an external career than on how to build inner character."

The latest sermon in our library comes from Madelyn Campbell, preaching on Thor and Loki and the balance between order and chaos.

Have any sermons you'd like to share?

Proposed liturgical calendar, marking the beginnings/ends and peaks of the four seasons. The calendar and its rituals are meant to draw us closer to the cycles of the earth, remind us of our interdependency on one another, and make room for expression of cultural diversity within our congregations/groups. #UU
