UUCMC Sunday Service Livestreamed from the Meetinghouse

Which, Not How
Michelle McKenzie-Creech, CDFM

There’s lots of advice out there about how to cultivate relationships, but what about the challenge of deciding which relationships to nourish? We live in a society that distracts us from the relationships that matter most, and certainly the relationships that could feed us the most. We will lean into the work of noticing and listening to the longings for deeper connection. What relationships need your attention right now?

Music by Dr. Louise Chernosky and PJ Casbar.

October Theme: Cultivating Relationship

What do we live for if it is not to make life less difficult for each other?

George Eliot

We are like aspen trees who have mistakenly thought that since we look like many trees, that is the truth—but under the ground, our root system is one—we are fully alive when we are connected because we are, we were always, part of one another.

Rev. Hilary Krivchenia

All real living is meeting.

Martin Buber

Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?

Henry David Thoreau

Building community is to the collective as spiritual practice is to the individual.

Grace Lee Boggs

Rarely, if ever, are any of us healed in isolation. Healing is an act of communion.

My friend is one who knows my song and sings it to me when I forget.

Anonymous

She is a friend of mind. She gather me, man. The pieces I am, she gather them and give them back to me in all the right order.

Toni Morrison, in Beloved

Unconditional love is not so much about how we receive and endure each other, as it is about the deep vow to never, under any condition, stop bringing the flawed truth of who we are to each other.

Mark Nepo

We must remember to go slow. It’s the secret so rarely mentioned. Simply put, relationships are hard to build when we are running.

Rev. Scott Tayler

Loneliness does not come from having no people around, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible.

Carl Jung

Beloved community is formed not by the eradication of difference but by its affirmation, by each of us claiming the identities and cultural legacies that shape who we are and how we live in the world.
