10/8/16 – Dr. Ruth Miller – Loving our Neighbors as Ourselves

Love. What is it? What does it mean? What does it take to love our neighbors? What does it take to love ourselves? In a world where most of what sells separates us from others, can we begin to overcome the pressure? Can we admit another person into our own, private sphere of love? What are the consequences if we do? Or if we don’t? Rev. Dr. Ruth Miller explores these questions in the context of our current socio-political climate, with some pointers for getting through it.

10/1/17 Dr. Marcia Pearce – “Creating a Life we can Love Living.”

Emerson said: “What you are shouts so loud I cannot hear what you say.”
Is that an indictment? A Challenge? Profferred truth of a wonderful
cosmic law?

Dr. Marcia Pearce suggests we are also being told that life is a very
clear mirror.If there are some reflections we don’t care for, there are simple
things to do that will create change for us. It’s OUR mirror.
