Rev. Meg Barnhouse's sermon delivered on August 9, 2020. So many of us feel ourselves unraveling, from time to time, feeling helpless, or traumatized, or horrified at what has been revealed about our neighbors' view of the world. What do we do with the anger we feel? How do we hold on to our hope?By First UU Church of Austin
 
Ministerial Intern Lee Legault's sermon delivered on July 19, 2020. Stoics were warriors of the mind who trained to build unbreakable will and character.

Rev. Meg Barnhouse's sermon delivered on May 31, 2020. It is once again time for one of our most beloved traditions. In a more usual year we would gather and bring a flower from somewhere along our path to share and take one from the altar. Bring a reminder of new life and the movement of the seasons and sharing it with the others gathered is a bea…
 
Assistant Minister Rev. Chris Jimmerson's sermon delivered on May 24, 2020. It seems like we cross into new territory all of the time these days. As we cope with a pandemic, we are in the midst of crossing a threshold, but we cannot yet see what the other side of that threshold may be like. Still, there may be opportunity in the uncertainty. We may…
 
Rev. Meg Barnhouse's sermon delivered on May 10, 2020. "All Will Be Well" This song is my "hit single" in the Unitarian Universalist world. I feel like it came through me, and that it changes its meaning somewhat in my life as I get more experience. From the letters people write me about it, I see that it has a life of its own, and shift its meanin…
 
R.E. Chaplain, Bear Qolezcua's sermon delivered on April 26, 2020. Growing up a sceptic, I questioned the faith I was told to have and why I would ever want to be a part of it. Join Bear W. Qolezcua, as he speaks about atheism and the power of prayer. Where does it have a place and how can we use it when we don't believe anyone or anything is liste…
 
Rev. Meg Barnhouse's sermon delivered on April 12, 2020. Rev. Meg tells one of the oldest human religious stories, a story from almost 4000 years ago, a story about resurrection often called Inanna's Descent into the Underworld. We are descending these days, deeper and deeper, and we do not know what the world will look like when we come back out a…
 
Assistant Minister Rev. Chris Jimmerson's sermon delivered on March 8, 2020. Though this is a difficult and challenging time, it also provides us with an opportunity to truly realize our interconnectedness - to know we can only get through this together, even as we cannot be physically together. Perhaps our vision, at least for now, may be less abo…
 
Rev. Meg Barnhouse's sermon delivered on March 22, 2020. Join Rev. Meg and Rev. Chris as they discuss community and what it means to them, while reflecting on questions such as: What does community do for us? How do we need it in our lives? And, what do we do when we cannot gather in person?By First UU Church of Austin
 
Assistant Minister Rev. Chris Jimmerson's sermon delivered on March 8, 2020. Wisdom is more than just knowledge. In fact, sometimes we have to unlearn things to have greater wisdom. Sometimes wisdom is found in uncertainty, making mistakes and the ineffable experience of our interconnectedness with the interdependent web of all existence. Sometimes…
 
Assistant Minister Rev. Chris Jimmerson's sermon delivered on February 23, 2020. Sometimes it takes grit and determination to stay resilient in times of challenge. Sometimes, though, like the trees, we need to be able to bend but not break when strong winds gust - change, but also hold onto our core selves, like when the river changes course around…
 
Rev. Meg Barnhouse's sermon delivered on January 12, 2020. The first in a sermon series inspired by the elements of baking. Sometimes transformation takes heat, it takes trouble, agitation or discomfort. We will have just finished two days of talking about our religious education program with an interim facilitator. Telling stories from the past ca…
 
Assistant Minister Rev. Chris Jimmerson's sermon delivered on December 8, 2019. When we consider the magnitude of our universe; observe the intricate beauty and yet the sometimes seemingly random cruelty of nature; contemplate the mysteries of life and living, we can feel both small and humbled, as well as have a sense of being a meaningful part of…
 
Ministerial intern Lee Legault's sermon delivered on December 1, 2019. We experience the world differently. Those of us journeying life neuro-typically and with ableist privilege too often hold this truth abstractly and at a distance. Let us hold the truth of neuro-physical diversity closely and tenderly to transform worship and build the Beloved C…
 
Assistant Minister Rev. Chris Jimmerson's sermon delivered on November 17, 2019. Sometimes our lives can be so fast paced that we fail to notice the beauty all around us. Societal turmoil keeps us from noticing the suffering of others. We fail to cherish the moments with those we love. We will explore mindfulness and directing our attention toward …
 
Assistant Minister Rev. Chris Jimmerson's sermon delivered on October 20, 2019. There is something about connection and sense of belonging that is essential to us as human beings. Any yet, true belonging is more than just fitting in with others. In fact, sometimes it means being so spiritually grounded in both a sense of self-acceptance and at the …
 
Assistant Minister Rev. Chris Jimmerson's sermon delivered on September 15, 2019. Our religious values are aspirational expressions of our highest expectations for ourselves. Expectations can provide powerful inspiration and help us live out our Unitarian Universalist faith and reach for our best selves. So too though, sometimes the unexpected and …
 
Rev. Meg Barnhouse's sermon delivered on September 8, 2019. How to Change Minds: Notes from the FBI Hostage Negotiators' Handbook.
