Pastoral Prayer April 6, 2014

Rev. Peg Morgan


Honoring Connection

Susan Howlett, Guest Speaker

April 6, 2014

Love isn’t just a state of being, it’s a way of acting in the world.  Love isn’t a sort of bliss, it’s a kind of work.  What, then, does it mean to love a place where you belong?  Susan Howlett is a proselytizing Unitarian Universalist.  A member of University Unitarian Church in north Seattle, Susan headed the local UU Pacific Northwest District’s Chalice Lighters grant program at the time of Westside’s last grant ($20,000+) which enabled us to establish our first Music Director position and to bring our Minister to full time.  Author, speaker, and UW faculty, Susan has consulted with over 1000 nonprofits nationally, and is known for her liberal use of humor, stories and chocolate. Chocolate?  Now we know why Rev. Peg likes her so much!

How Emptiness is More

Rev. Peg Morgan

March 2, 2014

Growing up, most of us didn’t learn how to truly be a healing listening presence for others.  We worry about what thoughts we should share, and what things we should do.  But in reality, less is more, empty is of greater weight, and just being is holy.

Rev. Peg Morgan

February 2, 2014

What is this word ‘Faith’ and does it have any place in UU theology?  Well, yes it does, but it’s not what you are thinking!

Beloved community is an intentional commitment to Hospitality, Contemplation and Trust. How are these truths living in you? In our congregation? And in the wider world?
