“Small Wonders”

Small Wonders  Rev. Judy Zimmerman, with Elaine Castles, celebrant. Thanks to the Internet, people can learn about Unitarian Universalism and religion online. It is a place where people can learn about being in community as a means to spiritual growth, in small-group ministry (Chalice Circles, Covenant Groups). We’ll explore the mystery of small groups, where the whole is more than the sum of its parts. Our friends at Community UU Church in Pasco, WA, will join us. This is a hybrid service, where you can participate in-person at the Rockford Grange or online. Follow Service on Zoom  

This Month’s Theme is “Ambiguity, Paradox & Repairing the World”

    Repairing the World is never easy or straightforward. While we may be guided by the best intentions, there are often unintended consequences. We would do well to be mindful of the ambiguous nature of reality. We pull one thread here to untangle a mess, only to create a knot elsewhere the proves almost impossible to undo. Sometimes it is best to proceed from a place of unknowing in order to escape the assumptions, prejudices, and motives of which we are unaware. Or, as Henna Inam counsels, “When we train ourselves to hold paradoxes by stretching ourselves out of the boxes our minds create, we stretch into new possibilities and adapt more quickly in a fast-changing world.” Perhaps, then, we can begin the repair.
