"Comparison vs. Compassion - which wins? At what game?" Rev. Leslie Becknell Marx

Better, faster, newer... always comparing, always striving. That is what our culture pushes us to do. What are we, as Unitarian Universalists, called to do? Join our minister Rev. Leslie Becknell Marx to explore the spiritual practice of compassion -- for self and others.

Multi-Platform Worship Sunday at 10:30 AM

This service will be offered as BOTH a virtual and an in-person service.

"Community of Love: A Soul Circle Service" Wy'east Members & Friends

Date

Each Sunday that we gather for worship, we reaffirm our purpose by saying together the words of our congregational covenant which begins: "We Covenant with each other as a community of love." Today we put that call into action by exploring deeply with one other what it means to be a community of love with each other, with our broader faith movement and with the wider world.

This participatory "Soul Circle" service is based on the small group ministry concept of Chalice Circle. We will offer some inspiration, a time for quiet reflection and an opportunity to share deeply with one another in small groups. This service will be facilitated by Wy'east Members & Friends.

 

Join Our Virtual Service Sunday at 10:30 AM

This service will be offered ONLY as a virtual service.

"The Ordinary Sacred" Kent Nerburn, author & spiritual teacher

Date

Kent Nerburn has been called “one of America’s living spiritual teachers” by the prestigious web magazine, Spirituality and Practice, and “one of the few writers who can respectfully bridge the gap between Native and non-Native cultures” by Harper Collins publishers.  He is the author of 16 books on spirituality and Native American subjects, including the acclaimed trilogy, Neither Wolf nor Dog, The Wolf at Twilight, and The Girl who Sang to the Buffalo.  His books on spirituality include Small Graces, Simple Truths, and Make Me an Instrument of your Peace.  Kent holds a Ph.d. with distinction from Graduate Theological Union and the University of California at Berkeley and spent 30 years working among Native American communities.  He says his work, at heart, is always "a search for an authentic American spirituality."  He will speak to us this morning on what he calls the "Ordinary Sacred" -- finding the spiritual in the everyday and how we too often underestimate the importance of life's difficult moments on our spiritual journey. 

There will be a Special Collection during this service benefiting "Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette"
