“Showing Up for the Muse”

Sam Treadaway, guest speaker
Recently, I spoke about how we find wisdom in those we encounter in our everyday lives. But often the answers to the most important (and most persistent) questions we confront are found from within. How is it possible to heed that still small voice while immersed in today’s very loud, chaotic world?

University Gathering
“A Bag of Trust”
Rev. Mary Frances Comer
Our monthly theme for February is Trust. Today we consider the combined wisdom of author George MacDonald and poet, Maya Angelou. MacDonald wrote: “To be trusted is a greater compliment than being loved,” and Angelou encouraged us to “have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.” Join us as we consider the relationship between love and trust and our own capacity to trust others.
