The Leaves of the Aspen Grove

This month, our theme is Journey, but what about those who are firmly planted? What lessons from those who stay right where they are, rooted and resilient, might we learn for our own lives and use as wisdom to enrich our own path? Today, we gain wisdom from the aspen groves and the curious, communicative, interlocking lives of trees.
Preacher – Reverend Elizabeth Mount

All are welcome!

Interdependence and Electoral Justice by Rev. Wendy Bartel

A Side with Love Prayer: Interdependence and Electoral Justice 2023 
Rev. Wendy Bartel names/not/pronouns/please

Spirit of Life and Justice,
We live in deeply challenging times. There are forces seeking to silence the people, to prevent them from using their voice, voting their conscience, and shaping a more compassionate and just future. There are efforts to disempower, misinform, and discourage voters, to remove them from the voting rolls with no notice and for no good reason.
Presence of Love, give us courage that we counter those negative forces with not only our vote but with our hearts and minds and bodies to protect one another’s hard-earned right to vote; even if we do not plan to vote the same way. Our democracy is stronger for participation. Guide our efforts to elect people at every level of leadership within and beyond our congregations, communities, counties, countries- who want for the flourishing of all beings. And then help us sustain our own engagement in strengthening governance, that our policies and practices, our laws and enforcement of them, be grounded in covenant and conscience.  
The Geese call –“Here we go!” “Carry on!” and “We’ve got this!”
Announcing our place as we go on and risk,
listening from one knee
or our seat, humbly
We vow to live in harmony
With the Earth, the Waters, and every Tree
They breathe, We breathe,
That’s how it’s meant to be
And in breathing we find healing
Living… loving… free…
Essence of Interdependence, teach us, yes, again, please
we seem to keep forgetting that we’re all connected
we seem to keep letting politicians leave our democracy neglected,
voters dejected and subjected to racism and oppression,
disinformation has some disconnected from the truth of fair elections…
I want to see all families reflected when we say We the People.
All families.
May we work in partnership with All that is to make it so!
Amen, Ashe, Namasté, and Blessed be.


On the round table in the lobby, there is a signup sheet for Coffee Hour. We need that sheet filled up today or we are going to have to start sending out Coffee Hour cancellations for the weeks ahead, and nobody wants to miss out on coffee and treats! Please put your name down for one of the next three weeks to set up or clean up. If the date you choose ends up not working out for you to come early or stay late, you can cancel or switch dates easily by contacting  administrator@uucheyenne.org,or Kayla.
Or, if you’re someone who likes a predictable schedule, let Jan or Kayla know if you can make coffee every third Sunday or want to take down tables one Sunday a month. We can put that in a regular slot for you and our Realm system will send you a handy Friday reminder to your email whenever it’s your turn! 
 Please sign up at least once each quarter so everyone has an opportunity to volunteer.
Thank you!

The Longest Road
On the path between birth and death, there are many way points, moments of decision and of forging new paths. Today, our sharing service asks our congregation to imagine and reflect on the spiritual growth we each have made over our lives, and examine some pivot points for insight into self and the meaning we find in our lives. We ask together: When have we taken “the road less travelled by”? What made us stop to consider a new journey? What elements influenced your choice at that fork in the road?
