Fifty-one years ago today, the people gathered at the Stonewall Inn had had one police raid too many, and they fought back. Many consider this the birth of the movement for LGBTQA+ rights in the United States, and to a large extent, around the world. Why did the shift happen then? If we must lean on the moral arc of the universe to bend it toward j…

In a faraway land, almost 2,500 years before the United States was established, the prophet Jeremiah wept and admonished: “They dress the wound of my people as though it were not serious. ‘Peace, peace,’ they say, when there is no peace.” The myth of white supremacy is a mortal wound to our country. It has been bandaged and salved, but never treate…
 
. . . Not this one, but previous ones. Plague and flu, tuberculosis and smallpox: each has challenged us, shown us who we were and could become, and offered us some lessons that could help us today.

We’re mostly associated with liberal causes, not just because we are religiously liberal. Religious liberalism is a stance that affirms personal freedom to seek spiritual truth, and places trust in humanity’s power to discern rightly, via reason and other gifts, and one need not be politically liberal to be religiously liberal; but we tend to be bo…

Order of service: bit.ly/uucpa_oos_20200405 If someone asked you to suggest three symbols that are important to you, what three would you name?

The poet Ross Gay undertook a year of writing, each day, about a delight he had observed that day, and published it as The Book of Delights. If you wrote down the things you observe about your day each evening as it ends, what would the resulting volume be about? Worry? Gratitude, as suggested by an upcoming workshop led by UUCPA member Susan Plass…

It is still a relevant question,although it’s clear that we have a sense of mission that goes beyond that ofa club. What does that mission mean for us as…

The events of the 20th century knocked optimism for a loop. Two World Wars, numerous genocidal campaigns; and the use of atomic weapons all seemed reasons to give up hope in human nature. With his eyes wide open to these realities, James Luther Adams asserted that while immediate optimism was unrealistic, “the resources (divine and human) that are …
 
We like to tell the story that Thanksgiving began in the fall of 1621. But actually Thanksgiving has been reinvented many times, sometimes including new people, sometimes leaving people out.
