Rev. Sharon Wylie

“Adoration Sunday”

To adore is to love deeply and fully. But we can feel embarrassed to show our love openly and unabashedly. This May Day, we celebrate the beauty and blessings of loving with our whole hearts. We’ll dance the maypole between services.

“Strengthening the Web (Active Hope #8)”

Doing the long haul work of changing the world means we must pay attention to how we sustain ourselves. This is the eighth sermon in a 10-part series inspired by the book Active Hope by Chris Johnstone and Joanna Macy.

“Flower Communion”

Please bring a flower for the altar as we mark the Easter holiday and revel in the beauty of our diversity.
Children are invited to participate in a hunt after first service (around 10:15). Please bring a basket or bag to collect easter eggs.

“Intersections and Microaggressions”

By some accounts, we are experiencing a second wave of the civil rights movement. In observance of Cesar Chavez Day, we will consider how racism, sexism, and classism remain insidious. We will also learn about the national Poor People’s Campaign, led by Rev. Dr. William Barber.

“The Risk of Changing (Active Hope #7)”

Everything is falling apart, and everything is possible . . . which can feel overwhelming! Building a new way of being means believing that change is possible. This is the seventh sermon in a 10-part series inspired by the book “Active Hope” by Chris Johnstone and Joanna Macy.

“Celebrating Aging”

Our modern culture glorifies youth and devalues aging. But that doesn’t mean we have to! This morning congregants of all ages will celebrate the gifts (and recognize the challenges) of growing older. Congregants 60 years and older will receive blessings and gifts as crones and sages.

Right Relationship with Money

Do you control your money, or does your money control you? Our fears and anxieties around money sometimes run amok. This morning we consider how to keep an appropriate perspective on the role of money in our lives.

Imbolc Blessings

Imbolc is the Neo-Pagan celebration of the earliest signs of spring, an observance that lives on in our modern Groundhog Day. At this morning’s service, the Maiden, Mother, and Crone will offer blessings of health and protection to all who ask.
