All I Want for Christmas is Your Presence

Jumping off from the Jewish holiday of Purim, we look into the value and meaning of presence and the gift of sharing our presence with others. In this interactive musical discussion, we will learn a simple sound healing exercise to help us become more aware of presence and share ways of bringing this awareness of presence to every moment.

The Reality of White Privilege

No one chooses the color of their skin at birth. We must live out our lives in the color given to us. Often times, we are not aware of the extreme differences that exist between the races of people who make up our world. Those of us who were born white seldom consider what life is like for those whose skin is a different color. To address our desire for racial equity, there is a necessary and uncomfortable conversation we must have about the reality of white privilege. This is where change begins.

Speaker: Rev. Vincent Lachina
Celebrant: Allen Lowe

Celebrant: Rosemary Stevens

Re-membering Ourselves as Neighbors: Answering Islamophobia & Living Into the Beloved Community

Moses, Jesus, and Mohammad, peace be upon them, called people in times of deep inequity to be good neighbors. They knew that being a neighbor is not simply a religious or moral issue: Being neighbors with and for each other is the essence of being human. Being neighbors is crucial for the survival and thriving of the larger human community and the Earth of which we are a part.

Speaker: Pastor Terry Kyllo, Director, Neighbors in Faith
