This Sunday's Service
March 29th, 10 AM
Ms. Annie Lavin, "How to Cast a Spell."
Maybe it's time to give wizards and witches a break and acknowledge the powereach of us has to cast a "spell" over another, even ourselves. There's no need for an exotic chant; most carefully chosen words will do. Words have enormous power. Many of us have used them to influence someone's actions, goals, and reality. In turn, we've all felt the powerful influence of another's words -- whether from the grandstand, the pulpit, printed material, social media, or casual conversation.
If we truly want to start thinking differently about things that matter, it's time to start speaking differently about them as well. Herein lies the power of the words we use, to create the reality we want.
UU minister Angela Herrera has written on this subject, and she has given permission and encouragement to include her thoughts in this talk. Come join the discussion as we gain a new appreciation for the power of words
