General Assembly (GA) is the annual meeting of our Unitarian Universalist Association, and is made up of five days of worship, learning and UUA business. Rev. Karen is attending GA online this year, and will offer her reflections on this experience.
Speaker: Rev. Karen Armina
Each and every one of us – regardless of color, shape, identity – holds beauty. This morning we’ll explore the power of the affirmation of our own beauty.
Our annual flower communion is a time to reflect on what we give to and receive from our community. This morning, we’ll remember the context in which Norbert Capek created his flower ceremony and the importance of beauty in dangerous times.
What are you curious about? What questions do you have for Rev. Karen – theological, spiritual, personal, ethical, philosophical, or religious? Rev. Karen will collect written questions and offer her responses during the service.
Sometimes we find ourselves in a state of disconnection. This morning, we’ll explore the role of curiosity in finding our way back.
The adage says that curiosity killed the cat. Katie Berardo writes that “what really got him in trouble was his inability to deal with the new situation he was in.” This morning, we’ll explore the role of curiosity in adaptability.
Many elements of popular sci-fi works have theological or spiritual undertones. This morning, in a multi-generational service, we’ll be curious together about science fiction as a source of wisdom.
The practice of finding one’s source, or root, is an integral part of the journey toward wholeness. This morning, in multi-generational community, we’ll explore how both Easter Sunday and Earth Day are celebrations of this journey.
As we seek wholeness, we often seek to integrate parts that are quite unalike, in ways that are both apparent and hidden. This morning we’ll explore how communities navigate the complicated work of seeing and honoring the differences between us.
Sometimes the best adventures are unplanned. In this morning’s multi-generational service, we’ll explore how curiosity and willingness to explore can help us find things we didn’t know existed.
