Resilience: Crack Your Shell
Rev. Dave Clements
For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction. However, in the life of a seed this is progress. This is an opportunity to grow and become something. How resilience helps us to reimagine, recreate and become something better. I invite you to join me on a journey of discovery as we discuss the connection between resilience and seeds.
Rev. Dave Clements is Sr. Interim Minister, UU Church of Peoria, IL

Insisting on Harmony
Rev. Megan Mathieson
How does our current need for racial justice work fit into our monthly theme of Harmony? Very well, in fact! “Racial justice” doesn’t have to be an uncomfortable, disharmonious sound!
Join us as we delve into the harmony of racial justice work.

Revolution for Harmony
Rev. Joan Van Becelaere, Executive Director, UU Justice Ohio
We have witnessed the astonishing growth of a movement for black lives and police reform in recent weeks. The quick rise of this movement and the diversity of those who participate in public witness has surprised many. And a number of people worry about the protest disrupting our larger social order. We have seen lots of different movements rise and fall over the years. Will this one succeed to move on to create real change? How does a movement become majority opinion, policy and then established social expectation? What do we think the future will hold for the black lives movement?
