Black Lives Matter!

Showing Up for Racial Justice

Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) invites us to stay engaged on Black Lives Matter efforts. Our Black neighbors, friends, and family members have been asking us to dismantle racism in ourselves for a long time. Join anti-racism book groups. Working with a small group of other white folks committed to this path is a really important way to strengthen our anti-racism muscles. Read More about “Showing Up for Racial Justice”

Words from Rev. Barnaby

From the Minister

  Before writing this monthly letter to you, I snuck a look back. I was curious what I had said to you in past years as we looked forward together to another    December. The messages read like a spiritual tug of war. Some years, I was drawn to the Winter Solstice, with its reassurance that the deep Winter ahead leads inevitably to Spring. Others, my mind and heart flowed more toward Christmas. What a compelling vision of how, precariously yet definitely, life unfolds within a Love beyond our full comprehension.

O buttoned plaid shirts, men in neat beards,
O matriarchs with your practical Judy Dench hair,
O, church parking lot of Prius and Volt. We
