Our Affirmation

From all that dwell below the skies
Let songs of hope and faith arise;
Let peace, goodwill on earth be sung
Through every land by every tongue.

All ages are invited to attend our worship service. Anything said at our services is for your intellectual and spiritual stimulation; no one is asked to agree or acquiesce to any doctrine or creed. Instead, you are free to seek the truth for yourself according to the dictates of your own reason and conscience.

The Flavor of Freedom
Allan Perkins

When we look at those we honor on Memorial Day, many of us think of 'Freedom', 'Patriotism' and their service. We are thankful for the rights of our freedom. But do we know the 'flavor' of freedom?

Paris Is Burning
Randy Partain

The 1990 documentary "Paris Is Burning" focuses on drag queens living in New York City and their "house" culture, which provides a sense of community and support for the flamboyant and often socially shunned performers. It also highlights some of the unique terminology of their community at the time, some of which has found its way into the mainstream even though many people are unaware of its history. How else do we inadvertently adopt elements of marginalized cultures without honoring their origins? And how can we be better stewards of those ideas?

Navigating the Continuum
Randy Partain

It's common for us to think in binary terms. Hot or cold. Winners or losers. Wizards or muggles. We often do this even when it comes to something as diverse as human identity, whether it's gender, ideology, skin color, or who we love. Our brains love to put things in clear-cut categories. And yet, one way we can live with greater integrity to our UU values is to recognize human identity as a continuum rather than a set of toggle switches. How can intentional spiritual practices help us navigate that continuum?

Bad Lip Reading
Randy Partain

There's a comedy group that specializes in taking video clips of movies and speeches and recording more humorous lines over the original images. And they do it in such a way that it looks like the person speaking is actually saying the more humorous lines instead of their original quote. This is good for a laugh. But we often do this with human beings around us too. We engage in "bad lip reading" when we assume that we know what other people need better than they understand their own needs. That can make creating justice, equity, and compassion a real challenge. Are there simple ways to clearly hear the needs expressed by others instead of thinking that we have all the answers?

Why should we notice the summer solstice?
Judy Bunch

One can't but notice that it gets hot in Texas. However, on the bigger spiritual picture the changing of the season is a time for recognizing a deeper connection within our wholeness. Let's take a few minutes to reflect.
