Rev. Roy Reynolds
10:30 a.m., via Zoom.
There is powerful untapped potential within the Unitarian Universalist faith. Imagine what would happen if the soulful gifts of Universalism were wedded with the creative gifts of Transcendentalism. This sermon dives into that possibility, affirming a communal ground of abiding love (our Universalist ethos) with the creative zest of Transcendentalism’s love of nature and creative human possibilities. This Sunday Service offers a vision of hope for these turbulent times.
Rev. Reynolds is a retired UU minister in Salt Lick, Kentucky. He writes regarding his Retirement Ministry:
Since December 2018, I describe my ministry as “contemplative eldering.” A Contemplative Elder serves spiritual wisdom through soul-spirit devotion to earth-centered companioning and contemplative practices. As a contemplative elder, my calling turns us toward deep dialogue, wisdom circle work, group experiences, and individual mentoring. Devoted to “The Great Turning” vision of Joanna Macy, I enhance and deepen that earth ethos by practicing with Dr. Robert Sardello in Contemplative Heart work. This earth-based ministry helps people grow wisdom qualities, capacities of awareness, and deep communal discernment.
