What I Believe: Unitarian Universalism

In my previous post I put a copy of a sermon I did on Sunday.  A couple of people were not familiar with Unitarian Universalism and I said I should post about it again.  Well, I’m being lazy today so instead of typing a new one, I’m reblogging the previous post I did a few years ago.  I hope you…

What Are Your Beliefs? Throwback

  Today’s throwback is from January 2009. One of my favorite websites is Beliefnet It’s a treasure trove of information about all the major worlds religions. It’s an especially good place to go if one is searching for others who may fall within your same religious beliefs. My favorite part of Belief.net is the Belief-O-Matic. It’s a fun test to…

Things I’ve Had to Let Go

Sometimes life just doesn’t go the way it’s supposed to you want it to. For instance, I’m supposed to have Bradley Cooper’s looks, and Bill Gates’ money. It’s a bitter pill to swallow, but I’m learning to accept that neither are, or will be, true. What can be harder to swallow are the hopes and dreams that aren’t so pie…

I’m Not Crazy, I’m Just a Little Unwell – Throwback

  Last month I posted a copy of a sermon I did at my church when our minister wasn’t available. Back in July 2003 I also did a sermon.  Here is the transcript of that sermon which I hope you’ll find interesting. Keep in mind that these were my notes so forgive me for grammar and punctuation errors. I’m Not Crazy,…

You’re Worth It

At my church we’re between ministers. Our previous minister moved back east last month, and our new one won’t arrive until August. To fill in the gaps, some of our congregants have been standing in. Below is a sermon I conducted on Sunday, July 24th, 2016. It was a twenty minute sermon, so it’s longer than my usual posts. I…

It’s All About Me

To receive the award, I have to list 11 random facts about me and answer a questionnaire with 11 specific questions. I normally don’t accept awards, but I made an exception because I was planning to do an “All about me” post for my…

Weekly Wrap-Up May 30, 2016

Mood Well, at least the week started off well. I was in good spirits through last weekend and the first couple of days of the week. Four times a year I do a presentation at the local community college on Buddhism and being Unitarian Universalist. No problem. I did great. Things changed on Wednesday midday after I got home from…

On Writing

Stephen King wrote an excellent book on writing, aptly titled On Writing. I’ll hope he’ll forgive me for using the same title for this blog post. While Stephen’s book was primarily about being a writer, this post is about why and how I write. Unemployment I haven’t worked in over eight years. My road to unemployment didn’t happen overnight, though.…

When I Grow Up

I’m at that place again where I ask “What do I want to do when I grow up?” I’ve been asking that question my entire life. There were day, weeks, months and even years where I knew the answer to that question, while other times I didn’t have a clue. I’m kind of at that “I haven’t got a clue”…
