The sermons of the Unitarian Society of Germantown in Philadelphia, PA

7.28.19, Wax On, Wax Off, Meg Ryan

What do artists and the science of creativity have to teach us about the links between resilience and resistance, between self-advocacy and connection with others, and how to solve the intractable problems of our world?

Meg Ryan is a flutist by training, a journalist and editor by trade, and an activist at heart. She spends a lot of time thinking, reading, and writing about what happens at the places where creativity, spirit, and nature meet. She’s been a friend of USG since she moved to Philadelphia in early 2016.

7.21.19, The Goddess Pilgrimage, Andrea Durham

The Goddess Pilgrimage

This spring Andrea journeyed to Crete to learn about ancient Minoan culture, worship of the Goddess and matriarchal societies. The Pilgrimage included experiencing Bronze Age Minoan ritual sites on mountains and in caves and a 1400 year old convent still functioning today. It celebrates a Society of Peace where the Goddess was revered as the Source of Life, women were honored, people lived in harmony with nature, and there was no war. An alternative to patriarchy. This Sunday, Andrea will share this journey with us.
