  • “A Kindful Christmas”

    Finding faults in the world is often seen as strength or intellectual rigor. Critical thinking has an important role, but fault-finding as a lifepath is fraught with pain and disappointment. This Sunday, in the peak of the holiday season we take a moment to shed criticism and learn to practice kindfulness.

  • “Describing the Indescribable”

    This Sunday we open to hear some of the ways mystics, theologians, and justice leaders have described their relationship with the sacred. Perhaps their words will help us better understand the awe and wonder we occasionally feel in our own lives.
