Can We Thrive Now?
Rev. Evin Carvill-Ziemer

This is a chaotic and unpredictable time in our country and planet’s history. The future feels uncertain and the present difficult. Even before the pandemic, many of us, myself included, were often exhausted and worried. We are all caught in multiple seismic cultural, emotional, and economic shifts and often impacted by collective traumatic stress. What do we need to let go of and leave behind to make way for new ways of being, living, and working together? What might thriving look like—personally and as a congregation—now?

Beginning Together
Ali Peters

On this first Sunday with our new minister, Ali Peters, we lift up the important threshold of beginnings.  Life is an endless stream of beginnings.  At the same time, every beginning is also a continuation of a story already in progress.  What does a moment of beginning offer us?  How do we meet this moment together?

Unicorns and the Theory of Everything
Ali Peters

In Unitarian Universalism, we support a free and responsible search for truth and meaning.  Does this look the same for everyone?  How do we nurture community together when it doesn’t?  Join us this Sunday to find out what we might be able to learn from scientists and unicorns as we wrestle with these questions.

Being & Becoming
Rabbi Eddie Sukol, founder of The Shul, Cleveland’s Open Synagogue

August 28 coincides with the beginning of the month of Elul on the Jewish calendar. This is exactly one month before we celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. In Elul we enter a period of introspection and self-reflection. We face the questions: Who am I? How have I failed to be the true me? Spiritually and psychologically this is a meaningful time. I will share stories and texts that can serve as a guide for all who embark on this pilgrimage to oneself.
