Between one ending and another beginning lies what William Bridges describes as the “neutral zone.” Once we have accepted that there has been an ending in our lives, we tend to be ready for the next new thing, a new beginning, to happen, right away. But it doesn’t—not yet. Instead, there’s a liminal, anxious, wondering, searching, indefinite, sometimes-lost period, “betwixt and between,” called the neutral zone. How might we find some contentment, some peace-of-mind, some rest and replenishment, even during…

We know about the original founding fathers. A nation, however, like any healthy, thriving organization/organism, must be re-founded and re-created over and over. The contributions of some are so important that they deserve the title of Founding Father/Mother of the nation. Martin Luther King, Jr. is a founding father along with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and others. Because of time and circumstances, most of us are not likely to make the kind of contribution made by MLK, Jr.;…

Turn the Other Cheek: Compliant or Defiant? by Rev. Gretchen Weiss

Turn the Other Cheek:  Compliant or Defiant? What if everything we’ve been taught about turning the other cheek was wrong?  As our nation continues to mark the 50th anniversary of key civil rights milestones of the 1960s, it is a good time to take a fresh look at the Biblical basis for non-violent civil disobedience. Recent scholarship suggests Jesus was not advocating meek, mild, submissive acceptance in the face of injustice, but something else entirely.

The Beloved Community: Sanctuary or Crucible?, Rev. Amy Russell Our congregations are places where we bring our fragile selves into interaction in ways that remind us of our family dynamics. Sometimes, we find ourselves falling into familiar patterns of interaction that we learned in our family of origin. How can we create communities that are sanctuaries but can also be crucibles where we learn through interaction how to find our best selves?

Process theology describes God as a series of “occasions” of experience flowing directly out of all other experience.  The choices that humans make are selected from possibilities that one might consider divine creations.  This theory posits that God is not controlling the world so much as luring humans toward possibilities of healing and wholeness.  Can God be seen as a “process” not a being”?
