Messages by Rev. Lee Paczulla

Care of the Minutes

Rev. Lee’s message today talks a lot about Thich Nhat Hanh, an important spiritual leader not only to the world, but especially to WellSprings. She uses stories from his life to encourage us to find beauty in the world right now, even if it’s hard to see.

There You Are

Rev. Lee begins by sharing some very sweet photos from Halloween to “give us a win,” in a week of otherwise challenging news. To introduce this new message series, Loving (Even) This World, Rev. Lee talks about what it means to try to find the good in exactly the kinds of things that can make our lives difficult.

The Idol of Busy

In today’s message, Rev. Lee talks about the tendency for us to look upon moments of rest as indulgence, rather than a necessary part of life. She shares a parable about a fisherman and a business executive meeting, and talking about their daily schedules.

The Idol of Wealth

Rev. Lee introduced our new American Idols series with a story about the “Idol” of wealth. She shares a story about a real estate investor who chooses to overlook the opportunity for making vast profits, and instead focuses on building up a community of committed neighbors.

WellCome Back Sunday

Rev. Lee and Ministerial Intern, Beth Monhollen, have organized a special blessing and “refreshing” for us this week. Congregants were invited to bring in a house plant and to let the congregation offer the plants a little boost.

Moving to Action

In today’s message, Rev. Lee sits down with local DEI advocate, Brandyn Campbell to speak about the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion, especially as it relates to young people, and in schools.

Practicing Hope

IN this return of our Neighbors and Helpers message series, Rev. Lee interviews Jordi Comas from the “Barnstorming PA” podcast.

Us Kids

In the wake of the tragic events in Uvalde, Texas, Rev. Lee opens our annual SpiritFlix series with the movie “Us Kids.” This film follows some of the survivors of the Marjorie Stoneman Douglass school shooting, as they turn to activism.
