Sixth Source: Spiritual teachings of Earth centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
Reverend Amy Beltaine

A fire requires fuel, and living whole-heartedly requires spiritual sustenance. Community and Relationships? Nature or Personal Experience? Stories, Myth, or Scripture? Teachers and Leaders? Tradition? What sources do you turn to that comfort you, challenge you, and inspire you? Let us bless our selves, and each other, with our richest sources. Program Leader: Sue Steward

Anyone who is curious about earth-honoring or deities-relating spirituality, or about the Covenant of UU Pagans is invited to a gathering with Rev Amy in the Thatcher room at 12:15 pm after the service.

Summer in the Garden

The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul. ~Alfred Austin

Universalist Recovery Church: Embracing Change

For most of us, change is a constant. Whether something shifts in our personal life or at work, or whether world events disturb our equilibrium, life does not stay the same. We can resist the changes that come at us, or we can embrace them, using them to encourage our own internal growth and change. As the Buddhist’s say, impermanence is a fact of life. How can we become comfortable with it so we can move gracefully through our life?

Listen for the Music
Reverend David Maynard

Last March my wife Jane and I heard the Oregon Symphony perform Verdi’s Requiem for Manzoni. Several years ago while sharing some of my life story with ministerial colleagues I realized that each period of time had pieces of music important to me. This will be a sermon on listening to and respecting the music in my life. David Maynard is Minister Emeritus of Eastrose Fellowship. He and Jane remain active in our congregation. Program Leader: Joyce Walsh

Summer in the Garden

Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace. ~May Sarton

Universalist Recovery Church: Acceptance, Tolerance, and Anger

How do we respond to discomfort and pain? Do we find something to be grateful for? Do we accept our lives, tolerate it, get angry? Is one response better than another, or better at one time or other? How do we navigate our emotions, allowing them to exist without getting overwhelmed by them so we relapse?
