As Reverend Mike has said, it takes over 40 people, working at different tasks, to pull off a Sunday service.

We get an opportunity to use our talents in service to the community and that in turn those tasks gives us purpose.

While the terminology of grace arose in Christianity, experiences of grace as oneness, glimpses of the holy, or healing transformation can be found across the world’s religions and traditions. Rev.

Justice

     “Am I my brother’s keeper?” This is the sarcastic answer that Cain, after killing his brother Abel, famously gives to God in the Old Testament. The reply leaves little doubt about how God sees it: “What have you done? Your brother's blood cries out to Me from the ground!”

Gratitude and Wisdom

​Mike Morran and I were chatting about the services on November 29 at First Unitarian.​

We spoke about lessons and skills that have been learned over a number of years of loss to cope.
