Sunday May 7, 2017: Pura Vida!

Pura vida! It is a catchphrase in Costa Rica, and translates to Pure life! Something like when my Tai Chi instructor says “It’s all Tai Chi” to encourage us when we aren’t perfect. I’ll be talking about the different landscape and lifestyle we experienced in Costa Rica, some ideas from a book I read recently, Civilization and Barbarism, and trying to clarify for me and you some rather rambling thoughts on just living, and living in community. In any case, we will have music and singing and celebrating our community.

It is also Pluralism Sunday, and a day we have been asked to have a teach-in on white supremacy by several caucuses of people of color within our Unitarian Universalist Association.

Peace, joy, and love,
Lisa
