Ponderings of our Spiritual Life Director 5-26-2021

All creativity is a cycle, not a singular event with no past and no future. But a cycle that has that quickening and rising to a Zenith and begins to decline and falls into a death and then an incubation, a holding or waiting period, and once again a quickening and then a rebirth. And this process continues over and over again. And it is this cycle that is right, and proper and cohesive and sacred.”

Clarissa Pinkola Estés, The Creative Fire: Myths and Stories on the Cycles of Creativity

I am in need of an incubation period. Therefore, I will not be writing a Ponderings until sometime late summer/early fall.

However, that does not mean that this space in our newsletter is closed. No, indeed, I am opening it up to all of you and the important things that you have to share with your faith community! Here’s a couple guiding questions for what you can share in this space, in a page or two:

  1. What theological/spiritual beliefs have helped guide you and how?
  2. What experience in your life has offered you pause and reflection and how did you redirect yourself and move forward?

Please submit your written reflection to heather@uuclakeland.org.

Thank you and Happy Summer!
