Worship Service December 6: Being Present is EVERYTHING
Rev. Marsh Agobert (he/him)
“May you live in interesting times.” This is an old Chinese saying… Well, actually a curse. Whether a saying or a curse is a matter of perspective. Yet, we Can say: We live in interesting times. So that double edge has never been more clear, as our culture comes of age. To the extent that we feel at the mercy of the tremendous tidal pulls of this moment, is the extent to which we are paying attention. If you’re not sure if you’re getting it (everything) right at this time…you ARE paying attention. Being present is even a challenge for the enlightened. One definition of enlightenment might simply mean that one releases resistance and accepts the challenge.
Worship Service December 13: Reparations
Baba Jaharat Amen-Ra Elkebulan-Ma'at (he/him)
In many ways, Reparations are already being won. Baba Jahahara Amen-Ra Alkebulan-Ma’at makes the point that reparations are about much more than a check. So discussing Reparations at this moment, considering the options, respectfully debating our differences, planning our strategies, studying our story of humanity, and more is a victory! While we are making great strides, overcoming some of the deepest effects of white terrorist supremacy and black self-hatred might take generations. What is key is that WE get and stay on the Reparations, and Ma’at, paths.
What is critical is that WE continue to make PREPARATIONS . . . FOR REPARATIONS!

Rev. Dr. Carrie Knowles (she/her)
