Triggers
Around Valentines' Day, we think about all the different kinds of love and relationships:  friendship, familial, romantic, etc.  But relationships can be hard work!  Our reactivity can preclude love and trust, halting their growth. Into this context comes a 2019 book called "Triggers" by David Richo.  When we are triggered, Richo writes, "we are being bullied by our own unfinished business."  We will reflect on the tools he suggests, which emphasize loving kindness and mindfulness.

Black History Series
Part 1:  Zora and Langston
When it comes to Black History, there is as much to celebrate as well as recall with grim reflection.  We begin a two-part sermon series for Black History Month with celebration, as we re-visit the Harlem Renaissance and two key figures who were gifted authors, Zora Neale Hurston and Langston Hughes.  What can we glean from their story that is relevant to today's world?

Black History Series
Part 2:  Reading Between the Lies
Let's be clear, Black History IS American History.  The ability to intuit when we need to "read between the lies" applies to all of our history.  This Sunday we reflect on how we can do this, with the help of Dick Gregory and his 2017 book, "Defining Moments in Black History:  Reading Between the Lies."  On Amazon, it says about the author:  "With his trademark acerbic wit, incisive humor, and infectious paranoia, one of our foremost comedians and most politically engaged civil rights activists looks back at 100 key events from the complicated history of black America."

Women's Wisdom

WISDOM is our Worship Theme for March.  Had Caesar been wiser on the Ides of March, perhaps it would have saved him.  But that is ancient history. For millennia men have hogged the spotlight when it comes to history, wisdom, politics, etc. Need I go on?  In the Centennial Year of women winning the right to vote in our country, we will shift our gaze toward the thinking and ideas of an alternative gender.  For this sermon we will focus on the wisdom of the grandmothers.
