Sunday Service Podcast August 18th – Umoja 10th Anniversary

“We can revise our maps only when we have the discipline to overcome that pain… That is to say that we must always hold truth, as best we can determine it, to be more important than our comfort… Mental health is a dedication to reality at all costs. ”  from Scott Peck’s The Road Less Traveled. 

Rev. Karen Lindvig finishes the Shiva summer theme by honoring the 10th anniversary of Umoja, Seattle Unity’s Afro-centric study group. She explores how “revising one’s maps” is a crucial part of spiritual evolution, and reviews a few ways in which African Americans have been at the forefront of helping to revise our nation’s maps. Umoja members Jackie Roberts, Gail Crumpton and Gerry Schley each shared a bit about their journeys.

Umoja meets 2nd Thursday of each month, and  new members are very welcome!

Today’s reading is Sonnet to Orpheus II by Rainer Maria Rilke, and Meditaitons of the Heart, by Howard Thurman.

Talk starts at 23:20

Our special music guest is Be Russell.
