A pastoral letter to Black UUs
How is it with your spirit today? Today, my spirit is struck by grief.
A practice of relationality
Prayer creates relationship where otherwise there might be none.
Glory fire chalice quilt
A love of bright colors and bold designs
Know that we are connected / in ways that are terrifying and beautiful.

‘Illegal’ immigrants & legal inhumanity
who are we the people to keep people / from cropping the ‘amber waves of grain’
Pearls of catkins / illumine the willow’s branches

Contextual theologies seek to change society and the use of power in society.
Shirley, Goodness and Mercy
‘The more I worked with it, the more I liked the idea of God’s grace as three sweet teenagers following me around.’
In tragic times, we come together in strength and love.

My grandmother’s grinding stone / El molcajete de mi abuelita
Surviving is made of the shadows of the grinding stone.
