Sunday, March 12th Rev. Mary Grigolia

When our government bans Muslims, goes after immigrants, normalizes violence against people of color, weakens environmental protection; threatens to defund the United Nations, we hear, “That’s not America.” Who are we and who do we dream of becoming? How do UU principles awaken us to American dreams for a future we help create?

 During the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln called our divided country to ‘the better angels of our nature,’ imagining our hearts broken open. In this turbulent time, how may we open our hearts, learn and heal?

Nurturing your beautiful heart from Robert R. Walsh, adapted:
When the great plates slip, and the earth shivers, and the flaw is seen to lie in what you trusted most, look not to  
more solidity, to weighty slabs of concrete poured or strength of cantilevered beam to save the fractured order.
Trust more the tensile strands of love that bend and stretch to hold you in the web of life that's often torn but always healing.
The shifting plates, the restive earth, your room, your precious life, they all proceed from love, the ground on which we walk together.
 
How are you trusting those strands of connection from your heart?
 
My spiritual practice is becoming simpler and simpler: Stop. Relax in this very moment (a full in-breath, a complete out-breath ), even if I have a lot to do. There is nothing more important or empowering than this spacious moment. With all that love creates. Right here with me as I write. Right here with you as you read. If I stay open, if you stay open, in the creative present, we touch our wholeness, our connection, and may become a blessing to those around us. Bringing ourselves right here, now, nurtures the heart - always here, ready to nurture us: Pause, take it in and live from the nurturing heart
