“To Be Alive” w/Robbin Ferriman #WeekendPlans 2/20/22

Monastic Mandalas Hildegaard von Bingen

The title of this Sunday’s sermon is “To Be Alive. “

When was there a time when you felt the most alive? What was happening? Think about it. Remember all the details.
How did it feel? How did it feel in your body? How does thinking about it feel now?

The more we can connect to the Divine, the more alive we begin to feel.

Please join us over Zoom, Sunday, February 20, 2022, at 10:30 am, for Fellowship, and 11:00 am, for Worship.

Pastor Robbin Ferriman from the Urbana Swedenborgian Church and Wedding Chapel is our Guest Minister. Zoom link will be provided to church members and their contacts.

#WeekendPlans #MothersDay

Enjoy your Sunday, (we do not have church this weekend) and while you’re at it, celebrate mothering!

Mother, Mom, Madre, Mäe, Ahm, Mum, Ema, Nana, Maji, Maman, Okaasan, Motina, Mat, 母亲, aHa, मां, แม่

No matter the language you use, “Mother” means love, comfort, acceptance, kindness, forgiveness and understanding. These are all qualities we find in God. Celebrate the Divine Human found in being motherly, no matter your gender. Spread these aspects of humanity to the world, and to the people in it.

Happy Mother’s Day to all.
