In Good Faith (10-14-18 Sermon)

I have rarely given, sold, or bought something and regretted it. I have given money to people who likely used it to buy drugs, I have sold something to someone who never paid what they owed me for it, and I have bought something I didn’t need or want from someone who asked politely. I have rarely regretted serving a need in another person. -Rev.

You Never Know (10-08-18 Sermon)

There’s no evidence that’s true; there’s no evidence it isn’t. You never know. To me, faith is right relation to unknowing and to mystery. It’s not the opposite of doubt; it’s the soulmate of doubt. Without doubt, you really don’t need faith. The opposite of doubt is arrogance, and ignorance. Bravado. Hubris. Swagger. -Rev. Victoria Safford, “You Never Know” Download 10-07-18-sermon pdf https://whitebearunitarian.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/10-07-18-audio.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS

Following the Songlines (09-30-18 Sermon)

How do we hold our history and transform it, and from that raw material, shape a new future? How do we hold the primary sources, the facts, redeem them in the present, and from that raw material, mined from the past and transformed into steel, into the durable strong metal of love and hope? How do we invent a new future, endow a new future, make possible a new chapter while our own is yet unfolding? Legacy is a mighty work, a life work, life-giving work. It’s what we do with our lives, what we make of ourselves. -Rev. Victoria Safford, “Following the Songlines” Download...

To Begin Again in Love (09-16-18 Sermon)

By definition, most of us humans are a bit of a mess. Most of the time, our transgressions and injuries are small. We forget what we love on a regular basis. We fall down and fall short all the time. We drop our rulers and our rules. -Rev.

Return Again (09-09-18 Sermon)

What words could signal “home, ” not only to all of us, but to every visitor, every wedding guest and mourner, and each member of our staff, and the UPS delivery person, Brian the furnace guy, and every solitary seeker who sits down in a pew, every queer or trans or gay person young or old who bravely, quietly slips in and wonders all through the hour if the spoken welcome will be lived in practice when the service stops and coffee time begins? -Rev. Victoria Safford, “Return Again” Download...
