May 6 Rev. Wanda Daniel Living on the Edge: A Beltane Celebration
For our ancient ancestors this time of year marked the tilling of soil, herding the cattle to pasture, days lengthening and sunshine strengthening. Like the bears emerging from their caves, people emerge from the darkness of winter and celebrate the fertility of earth, self, and life. Today, as then, such celebration invites courage as we dance and sing, nourish our fertility and integrate living on the edge as whole & healthy human beings. How we do so in our world here and now reveals our wisdom and creativity!
May 6 Noon ****Special Workshop Noon
Loving on the Edge: Courageous, Compassionate Conversation
Led by Rev. Wanda Daniel, Lunch and Childcare Provided
At times living on the edge requires gathering for courageous and compassionate conversation so we might also love with wisdom on those edges. As thoughtful and discerning human beings we bring the best of who we are to the table so we might wisely see the challenges we face and respond in ways both accepting and transforming. Over the past few weeks Billings UU Fellowship has struggled with how best to welcome, alongside how best to create a safe space. These deep and profound challenges exist in so many places these days, and a community willing to converse and grow reveals a community rooted and reaching in becoming humane. Come ~ bringing yourself, your hopes & fears, your love of this community, and your dreams for joy & beauty in this world.
