Weavers and Threads

Eric Bannon. When we tell a story, we weave together the threads of our personal experience and beliefs; we express our values, even sometimes unintentionally. When someone hears our story and they are moved or inspired by it,  a little strand from that thread connects the teller and the listener at the heart. We will explore how our personal stories connect us as families and as a community.

Eric Bannan is a musical storyteller whose songs travel the bleak desert highways and lush mountain hollows of the heart. His sound is rooted in folk, driven by foot-tapping funk and seasoned with the blues. More than an entertainer, his mission is to build community with story and song. With over 35 years of performing experience, Eric’s shows are an energetic celebration of life, love and loss.

Hide and Seek: Theology as a Corrupt Form of Spirituality

Dale Barrington. Theology is a limited entry into understanding spirituality, which makes monotheistic religions as Judaism, Christianity and Islam have a difficult time within diverse and pluralistic cultures.  Being progressive has been a challenge when sharing a studied response within such a culture.  I concluded that I was really not a Christian but, rather, a follower of Jesus as I was of Martin Luther King Jr. or Gandhi or any person who has concern for both the planet and its inhabitants.

So, I come as a fellow traveler and nothing more.

Looking for a Miracle but Finding Healing Instead

Dale Barrington. I am using the Christian Scripture as the sacred writings it is, but I do so from a religious humanist point of view.  To say that I am fond of this literature is an understatement.  Still, I study it as important to me within the trove of spiritual lexicons I draw upon as written, and experienced through every emotion, and mental reflection that weaves itself into my senses.  Plus, being a Unitarian Universalist with our own hang-ups over the classical Christian traditions I do not want us, you and I, to just see it as a waste of our time.

I am looking in particular at Luke 17:11-19, and consider the author's intention for the reader of his/her day.  It is encased within a miracle, which seems to be a subset to a larger meaning for another day. This is where we have fun.....

The Eternal Now: Both Good and Bag Choices

Dale Barrington.  Our spiritual development takes on a form of growth that comes as natural as do our physical, mental and psychological abilities when maturing. With everything else, the spiritual life changes over the years.  There is no solid state.

So, how does this translate itself into celebrating religious symbols and holidays within our communities such as Sundays, Easter and Christmas?  Of course, I can only speak for myself.

Ready or Not, Here I Come: A view to nature / nurture conflict; a struggle of spirituality, and a struggle of being human

Dale Barrington. We are ever struggling within culture (our surrogate parents) to be true to ourselves as a human being.  I consider this a spiritual journey, a gift-mix of experience and challenge.
