“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real…It doesn’t happen all at once. You become. It takes a long time.” – Margery Williams Bianco, The Velveteen Rabbit
This month we will be focusing on becoming in our services and our posts. We will have meditations about becoming posted on Wednesdays and articles/information about the spiritual practice of imagination on Saturdays. We hope you will join us on our becoming journey.
Here are some spiritual practices to consider –
The practice of discovering that inside you which wants to be born.
The practice of no longer hiding.
The practice of continual growth.
2016 hasn’t been perfect, but we have had a good year.
We have celebrated historical figures from UU history. We even had special guest Carol Sroczynski who interviewed Mother Jones, played by Patience Deweese. Special thanks to them and the members (Shelia and Jim Rye) of the Morgantown West Virginia Unitarian Universalist Fellowship who provided our music for that day.
This is a really great reminder that is the little things that get people to stay or come back.
“We’re better together. You’ve heard this before. And often it is in the context of pooling resources to create something larger than we could offer as a separate entity.”
I’m ready for a road trip of growth and this article has some cool ideas.
A new article in USA Today describes how Unitarian Universalism is growing.
“Although they remain small in total numbers with about 211,000 adherents nationwide, Unitarians believe their open-minded faith has a bright future as an alternative to more exclusive brands of religion.”
Come join us. See what this growth is about.
