The UCH Healing Circle is a group people who gather together in our sanctuary one evening a month January through November to direct God’s healing energy (Love) to those whose names are entered into the Circle. A breath centered meditation is used to calm, relax, and center ourselves in preparation for this directed healing practice. The Healing Circle is open to anyone; the only requirement is being open to the possibilities that God has available to us.
This Sunday we will be reflecting on how to create and build community. Writer, Kurt Vonnegut suggests that "The most daring thing people can do with their lives today is to create loving, safe communities, in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured." The idea of creating loving communities is not new. Paul's favorite metaphor for this joyous, messy work in his letter to the Corinthian church is being, "The body of Christ." Does this metaphor work for us? Or is it problematic? What wisdom can we glean that will help us with the challenging and daring work of creating, loving, safe, complex, diverse communities. Join us as we explore the 1st and 21st century complexities of building healthy communities. -Rev. Jeanne
