Message: “Wandering in the Wilderness” from Rev. Michael Walker

Rev. Dr. Tom Owen-Towle - July 31, 2022

I Owe God a Death

Our American culture remains death-defying and our UU movement failed, a decade ago, to embrace mortality during our re-envisioning process of our purposes and principles. We have work to do. If we earthlings wish to live more robustly and caringly, we must consent to die. As naturalist Wallace Stegner put it, "I owe God a death."

From Monthly: "Quest"

This month our theme is Quest, and we’ll explore it in worship, small group discussion, and personal reflection. Stories of quests abound and usually show a protagonist and companions setting out to acquire an important object or to get to a location; along the way they face temptations and other obstacles. While on a quest you encounter new stuff — and there are multiple invitations to notice what is happening around you and in yourself. How are we, personally, as a congregation, and as a denomination, embarked on a quest? What stories do we tell about our quest, our dreams and aspirations, our challenges, failures, collaborations, discoveries, lessons, renewed striving? How do we help each other on our journeys?
