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?
 Preacher – Reverend Elizabeth Mount

A Prayer by Adrian L. H. Graham,
for 30 Days of Love 2023
Holy Spirit of Life and Love, WOW! You are so EXTRA!

You are greater than anything that we have imagined thus far, yet you dwell within each of us…and I thank you for this precious day. We, your Beloveds, come in so many shapes and sizes, able-bodied and disabled, and in all the many colors of the rainbow. We are cisgender, transgender, agender, nonbinary, and more. We are homosexual, heterosexual, bisexual, asexual, pansexual, demisexual, and more. We are monogamous, polyamorous, single, partnered, married, and more. In a time when our differences are stereotyped and exaggerated to drive wedges between us…help us,
O God of infinite variety, to appreciate our likenesses and to view our differences in a pluralistic society as the strengths that they are. In a time when our bodies are regulated by cultural norms and legislation to dominate us…help us,
O righteous God of the oppressed and marginalized, to side with Love, to rise up and to resist, reclaiming our voices and our bodily autonomy as our birthright. In a time when entire societies across the world are overrun with poverty, hunger, and disease both local and systemic…help us,
O God of healing and salvation, to center care for the whole, reminding us that only together can we realize a just, equitable Beloved Community on this earth. Help us to know that we can be greater than anything that we have imagined thus far, and so much more, and that “on earth as it is in heaven” means that we have a lot of work to do, here and now.
You, Great One, who are present in every raindrop, in every breeze…with us in every sunrise and every sunset…rejoicing from within every giggle and every smile…remain present to us when the storms of life are passing over. Remain present to us when we would forget to see you in our neighbor’s face. Remain present to us when we would neglect to care for our home, the earth, and our fellow creatures with whom we share it. We know that what affects one affects all in this interdependent tapestry of life into which you have woven us. We know that we have the power to act…because you reside in us, and we are…you; we are your hands, we are your feet, your eyes, your ears…each of us enfleshed emissaries of the Holy.

The psalmist, sure of their worth and dignity, and assuring us of ours, proclaims, “I will give thanks to You, because I am awesomely and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.”1 Yesss! My queer Black soul knows very well that I am awesomely and wonderfully made in all of my EXTRA fabulousness. May you know the same in your heart, in your mind, in your body, and in your spirit. You are greater than anything you have imagined thus far. Go ahead and be EXTRA.

Amen. Ashe. And may it be so. Adrian L. H. Graham

Where is the Love?
As we begin African American history month and Share our Plate with Wyoming Equality, our values call us to examine our hearts and our values more deeply and to find where Love joins with community to shape justice in the world. Let us find, once again, the courage and compassion to become more deeply involved, to honor one another’s struggles, and to build a world in which the fullness of self is prized and encouraged.
