The Future We Choose

Buddhism would say it is already here. Is that good news? Rev. Barnaby considers the wisdom of a line of poetry that reads “everything is fleeing toward its presence.”  DAYLIGHT SAVING time ends Nov 1. Set clocks back one hour.

Black Lives Matter!

No More Killing!

Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) invites us to stay engaged on Black Lives Matter efforts. Several walked with Middlebury College students protesting for justice for Breonna Taylor Friday Sept 25 at Cross St Bridge. Several have posted and had their BLM lawn signs stolen, especially from East Middlebury and Ripton. We are urged to report this to police. Follow more here.

Words from Rev. Barnaby

From the Minister

As I write this on Oct. 25, we are heading into a month full of uncertainty, but also consecrated to reflecting on gratitude as we prepare December’s many holidays. Perhaps our biggest spiritual challenge will be finding ways to be grateful for uncertainty.

             And what a challenge! I don’t know how the 2020 election will come out or when we will finally know the results. I don’t know when the arrival of a good vaccine or some other development will begin to put Covid-19 in our rear-view mirrors. I have no idea when humans – through cooperation or collapse – will decisively halt their upward spiral of hydro-carbon emissions driving climate change.

I am the direct beneficiary of slavery. Where do I go with that? Guilt. Denial. Tears. Anger.
