Please join us Sunday February 28th at 11am ET for

Discovering America Again

By Rev. Dr. Clyde Grubbs

Description: In the fifteenth century Christian Europe asserted the right to conquer and subjugate the non-Christian peoples of Africa and the Americas. The result was enslavement and genocide of many peoples. How do we discover an America of peace and justice?.

Clyde Grubbs is a Unitarian Universalist minister who served congregations in Indiana, Quebec, Massachusetts, Texas, Florida, and California. He is presently serving as Minister at Large of the Tuckerman Creative Ministries for Justice and Healing. Clyde honors his Native American heritage (Texas Cherokee) which informs his spiritual understanding and practice, and his anti-racist and anti-oppressive commitment. He has worked for peace, justice, and equality since he was in the Unitarian Universalist youth movement, Liberal Religious Youth.

Suggested Listening: Time for an upbeat Italian delight. A tarantella is said to be an ancient hedonistic cult dance as well as an emergency therapy for the bite of a tarantula. Odd that this one was written by a German Jesuit priest who was the most preeminent scholar of his day, Athanasius Kircher.
Kircher authored 40 major scholarly works and was called "Master of a Hundred Arts" 
Funny joke for the day: Jesus in Jerusalem in need of a new robe sees a sign for "Mandelbaum, the Tailor." Mandelbaum prepares a wonderful new robe for him and is a perfect fit.
When he asks how much he owes, Mandelbaum brushes him off: "No, no, there's no charge. But, may I ask a small favor? Maybe whenever you give a sermon you could just mention a little something about how your nice robe was made by Mandelbaum the Tailor."
Jesus readily agrees, and as promised, plugs Mandelbaum's robes as he preaches.
Some months later, he is walking through Jerusalem and happens by Mandelbaum's shop. There is a huge line of people waiting for Mandelbaum's robes. He pushes his way through the crowd to speak to Mandelbaum.
 "Jesus, Jesus, look what a marvel you've been for business," gushes Mandelbaum. "Would you consider a partnership?" "Sure, sure," replies Jesus. "Jesus and Mandelbaum it is."
"Uh, no, no", says Mandelbaum. "Mandelbaum and Jesus. After all I am the tailor, the craftsman." The two of them debate this and many other topics for some time. Finally, they come to a compromise decision. The new sign went up: Lord & Taylor.
