The Case Against Columbus Day
Columbus Day is not the most popular holiday in the United States, and goes more and more out of vogue each year. There’s good reason for this. For years, Columbus has been a symbol of racist and colonial ideas that justify abuse and treaty-breaking with Native American peoples. In this morning’s service, we’ll not only take a critical look at how outdated mythology is our everyday fare as Americans, but explore the new world views that are on their way. Come to meditate on a path forward that is more ethical and equitable than ever before.
We will hold this service at the Fellowship for in-person attendance. It will also be streamed online for remote participation.

All Our Ancestors Hope For
As we head toward the traditional ancestor-honoring celebrations that come at the end of October in many cultures, let us take a moment to reflect on the lives of our ancestors, and what they may have wished for us – their descendants. This morning we will uproot the ‘Golden Age’ fallacies that might obscure our view of history, and become more grateful than ever for the opportunities we now hold. Finally, we’ll commit ourselves to making use of those opportunities in ways that honor all the struggle that has come before.
We will hold this service at the Fellowship for in-person attendance. It will also be streamed online for remote participation.

Stronger Together

To make our world better, each of us must celebrate and share our unique gifts to nurture our planet. As curious, spiritually independent people, our Fellowship strives to provide an open and supportive environment to explore the creativity, strength, and wisdom within the diverse experiences and aspirations of each of us. We find joy and meaning in such a community. And by working together, we strengthen our connections.
