Unitarian Universalism for Troubled Times
with Rev. Kate Lore
We are living in times of economic uncertainty, mass shootings, and fear for the future. Our values call us to live in the reality of the heartbreak of our world, remembering that no one is outside the circle of love. At such a difficult time in history, what does Unitarian Universalism have to offer? BIO: Kate Lore has been serving Quimper UU Fellowship in Port Townsend for the past 2 years and was recently called as their settled minister. Prior to that, she served First Unitarian Church of Portland as the Social Justice Minister. Kate enjoys hiking, kayaking and her new life on the North Olympic Peninsula.

We first shared this poem in 2017 and there feels a need for it today.

Breathe, said the wind.

How can I breathe at a time like this,
when the air is full of the smoke
of burning tires, burning lives?

Just breathe, the wind insisted.

Easy for you to say, if the weight of
injustice is not wrapped around your throat,
cutting off all air.

I need you to breathe.
I need you to breathe.

Don’t tell me to be calm
when there are so many reasons
to be angry, so much cause for despair!

I didn’t say to be calm, said the wind,
I said to breathe.
We’re going to need a lot of air
to make this hurricane together.

The Unbearable Weight of Stuff
The Rev. Emily Melcher

From the person who keeps an extra everything “just in case”, to those of us who have simply accumulated more stuff than we need, our possessions can too easily come to possess us. No wonder there are so many books and television shows about decluttering, minimalism, and even “The Gentle Swedish Art of Death Cleaning”. In addition, there are now life coaches who earn their living helping others declutter, downsize, or clean out after a person’s death. Practical tips for paring down our stuff are widely available; today we’ll talk less about the “how” and more about the “why”.
