More
We need everybody present and accounted for, present and accountable, telling in the first person plural a new story which is an old story, an ancient, holy story about who we are and who we’re called to be, which some of you might call “children of God,” and some might just call “good and decent […]

Keeping Faith (10-21-18 Sermon)

10/23/2018
More
We reach for any good word we can possibly use, and some of them are ancient, holy words, archaic, clumsy, tarnished, not accurate, not literal, not scientific or efficient, but still possibly, everlastingly true. -Rev. Victoria Safford, “Keeping Faith” Download 10-21-18-sermon .pdf

In Good Faith (10-14-18 Sermon)

10/18/2018
More
I have rarely given, sold, or bought something and regretted it. I have given money to people who likely used it to buy drugs, I have sold something to someone who never paid what they owed me for it, and I have bought something I didn’t need or want from someone who asked politely. I […]

You Never Know (10-08-18 Sermon)

10/11/2018
More
There’s no evidence that’s true; there’s no evidence it isn’t. You never know. To me, faith is right relation to unknowing and to mystery. It’s not the opposite of doubt; it’s the soulmate of doubt. Without doubt, you really don’t need faith. The opposite of doubt is arrogance, and ignorance. Bravado. Hubris. Swagger. -Rev. Victoria […]

Following the Songlines (09-30-18 Sermon)

10/2/2018
More
How do we hold our history and transform it, and from that raw material, shape a new future? How do we hold the primary sources, the facts, redeem them in the present, and from that raw material, mined from the past and transformed into steel, into the durable strong metal of love and hope? How […]

To Begin Again in Love (09-16-18 Sermon)

9/18/2018
More
By definition, most of us humans are a bit of a mess. Most of the time, our transgressions and injuries are small. We forget what we love on a regular basis. We fall down and fall short all the time. We drop our rulers and our rules. -Rev. Victoria Safford, “To Begin Again in Love” […]

Return Again (09-09-18 Sermon)

9/12/2018
More
What words could signal “home, ” not only to all of us, but to every visitor, every wedding guest and mourner, and each member of our staff, and the UPS delivery person, Brian the furnace guy, and every solitary seeker who sits down in a pew, every queer or trans or gay person young or […]

Life's Longing for Itself (05-13-18 Sermon)

5/14/2018
More
There are almost never guarantees, that the cause will be won, the war averted, that the child will grow up happy and healthy and perfectly safe, or the deliberate smiles that you bring to your co-workers and strangers in stores and in the skyway and the street will ever be noticed, much less have effect. […]

Home Economics (05-06-18 Sermon)

5/9/2018
More
I believe the blood in our veins is unanimous, like the rain from which it derives, and we all bear a common name and that name is Beloved. That name is Worthy. -Rev. Victoria Safford, “Home Economics” Download 05-06-18-sermon pdf

Eternity and Elements of Dust (04-22-18 Sermon)

4/24/2018
More
We touch the whole, the universal, always through the particular. I don’t know if you can really love the earth, anymore than you can love humanity, except theoretically, on principle. But we can love each other in particular, and we cherish certain places and thereby hold a reverence for the whole. -Rev. Victoria Safford, “Eternity […]

Time to Wake Up! (04-01-18 Sermon)

4/5/2018
More
“We forget to keep the promises we started with, to be simply grateful and amazed, to stay enchanted, stay awake. When we’re awake we notice things – beauty all around, and brokenness, all around. When we’re wide awake, not drifting in complacency or apathy or cynicism or denial – when we’re wide awake and brave […]
