May Day

Posted in Guest speaker, Unitarian Universalism, Earth based theology by starrkinguu on May 7th, 2018

Pulpit guest Rev. Amy Beltaine.  May Day is celebrated on May 1st, a time of celebrating Spring and exchanging flowers with neighbors and friends.  In earth-relating and deities-relating cultures of the Northern Hemisphere the themes of fertility, beauty, renewal art and abundance were celebrated in festivals like Walpurgisnacht, Beltane and Floralia.  International Workers day is May 1st as well.  How can we embrace the beauty and emergence around us while remembering the work that we must do?


A Generous Comfort

How do we give our hearts and bodies comfort so that we can give gorgeously of our gifts and treasures out into our community and the world? Join guest Megan Dowdell in exploring this question through sermon, song and spirit.

Megan serves as Assistant Professor of Ethics and Society at Starr King School for the Ministry, a Unitarian Universalist identity seminary alongside Rev. Maria Cristina. She lives in Los Angeles with her partner Stefanie, her cat Emerson and her dog Violet.  Megan is a candidate for UU ministry and this month, she will interview with the Ministerial Fellowship Committee, the credentialing body for UU ministers. Megan is thrilled to lead worship with an intentionally welcoming congregation whose ministries strive to create justice and serve the community across the lifespan.
