“Lost in the Weeds

The parables of Jesus offer a less direct path into spiritual practice and reflection, regardless of belief or affiliation. They are designed not to shore up our categories, but to rupture them. In a time when we find ourselves forced to rethink everything, Jesus’ words about judgment, discernment, patience and wisdom are more compelling than ever. Join us as we go digging in the garden of our spiritual practice!

“Defund the Police?!

Cynthia Fisher, President of the ACLU of Florida Volusia/Flagler Chapter, will offer some historical context on policing in America, and some reassurance that “defunding the police” is not as radical or alarming as it might sound. She will consider what various models of “defunding” might look like, and clarify ACLU recommendations. “Defunding the police” does not mean abolishing forces or zeroing their budgets, but it may require us to reconsider what we “know for sure” about what police forces do, and how and why they do it. Together we will learn how this is relevant to Volusia County.

“Do You Believe in Magic?

UU minister Matthew Pargeter-Villarreal will be talking today about…yes… unicorns! Come along on a journey to discover the history and mythology of these fantastical creatures and how they not only make popular party decorations and cake toppers, but also have much to teach us about appreciating and recognizing the presence of the divine in our everyday world.

“Does it Make a Difference?“


The parables of Jesus offer a less direct path into spiritual practice and reflection, regardless of belief or affiliation. In a time when we find ourselves forced to rethink everything, Jesus’ words about judgment, discernment, patience and wisdom are more compelling than ever. This week, we look at the metaphor of a small seed and a bit of yeast. Is there really hope for something so small to really make a difference? These stories aim not only to show you this is possible, but to enlist you in the tiny practices that change the world.
