Making a Life
In today’s message, Rev. Lee talks a bit about how, in the bible, Eve was originally identified not as a partner, but as “a helper.” We then get to hear from Carol Ruark, a WellSpringer working with disadvantaged children.
Rev. Lee speaks with two guests: Julie Choi and Tiffany Shoffner, about their work in sales, and how their jobs have come to mean more to them than they initially expected.
Lay preacher, Kathleen Higgins, shares her story about how her initial goals of being a teacher have landed her in a teaching role she didn’t quite expect.
Guest preacher, Caroline Bright, begins by telling us some history of Unitarian Universalism, and the role women have carved out in the tradition. She also shares some stories about her prior work as a flight attendant, and a particular moment when she connected with someone on a flight.
In today’s message, Beth Monhollen speaks with WellSpringer, Matthew, about his work as a translator. Matthew shares his experiences working in this field as a freelancer, and speaks about the challenges and joys of his work. To close, Matthew and Beth share a prayer in 5 different languages.
In today’s message, Rev. Lee talks about the current culture of overwork. She reminds us that we are more than just our jobs – but also shares stories about moments when our work feels very important, and in service to something greater. Towards the end of her message, she shares a “recipe card” and invites us to consider what makes a life.
Today, Beth Monhollen takes us through the ingredients for making a life, beginning with a bit of playful remembering about what we wanted to be when we grew up.
