Lynnea developed her unique style through her complementary health care, cross-cultural, spiritual, and religious studies.

As an ordained minister with the Centers for Spiritual Living, Rev. Lynnea Jardine specializes in Pastoral Care and Spiritual Counseling. This includes teaching classes, leading ceremonies, and producing conferences.

Reverend Sarah Schurr will be talking to us about the justice work the UUA does every day. There is a lot that many people don’t know about, from our UU the Vote, to our work with disability justice, to our intentional personnel practices. As a member congregation of the UUA, we are a part of this good work.

The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all.

Reality kinda sucks right now. If you’re like me, you’re probably really frustrated at the fact that topics such as racism and the war in Ukraine, and global warming, and the 2020 election are still topics of discussion as if there really are two valid opposing views instead of the one obvious loving and logical viewpoint. Who could possibly be against liberty and justice for all? Am I right? You’ve probably also been paying close attention to news headlines and posting a Facebook rant every once-in-a-while. These times are exhausting, but it always helps to have a good soundtrack to get you through the stressful days.

As Unitarian Universalists, our Fourth Principle calls us to “a free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” While this sounds noble and just, what does “free and responsible” look like when put into practice—especially within our current environment of partisan politics, so-called “culture wars,” media silos, and passionate calls for social justice. This Sunday we gather, in a place called “sanctuary,” to search together—freely and responsibly.

On Sunday, let’s take a look at the Fourth Principle—a free and responsible search for truth and meaning. We will view it through the lens of film, The Wizard of Oz, as a journey down “The Yellow Brick Road.” Join us as Mike Murdock takes us on this trip toward new insights regarding this principle.

This week we’ll explore the 8th principle: We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our action that accountably dismantles racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.

Supporting Democracy: Refueling the Fire of Commitment
The 5th Principle of Unitarian Universalism is: The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large. In our country there is evidence of the degradation of the access to, as well as the reliability of, the democratic process. Our faith asks us to fight for and use the democratic process. There are many ways we do this but...when will it end? How can we continue this work when there's bad news every day? One answer is making room for joy and expressing our anger in music.
