Lessons The Hard Way

And BOOM…there it is. A primary tenet of Christianity, the Bible, has been hijacked by the US government.* Those of us who believe in the Love, Grace and Forgiveness version of Christianity feel it is a betrayal. We are even more upset by the members of our religion who don’t see the hypocrisy. Personally, Jeff Session’s comments make me sick to my stomach. The association of his words with his actions does NOT align with the teachings of the Christ I follow. I wonder, is the world listening to this, watching the horrific actions...

Today

Posted by on Nov 9th, 2016 in Uncategorized | 2 comments

If there was ever a day to be a Sacred Feminist (and that is not just for women) it is today. Today needs Wisdom and Love and Vision and Creativity. We are being shown the reality of our country in the US. We can’t Heal until we know the reality. I had the thought that perhaps we aren’t supposed to put our hopes of unity on ONE woman….or man. Perhaps we ALL need to plan how we will create peace through love to ALL people. We can do it. This is our call to action. How do you plan to improve the world? Share...

An Open Letter to The Universe

An Open Letter to The Universe

I like to write about things that matter to me, but rarely do I write with the raw, precious grit and honest humor of authors like Ann Lemott. When I read her “stuff” I envy her wisdom and appreciate her open heart. More often than not, I am feeling the same way and I need the language she and others like her are providing. So now, because I have had this brave woman—and others—as my teachers, I have the courage to publicly call UNCLE to The Universe….. Dear Universe, Every day I get a cute little email from you, The Universe. Sometimes, I...

Happy MLK Day!

This is one of my favorite days of the year! If you know me, you know that MLK is one of my teachers from history—I love his courage, brilliance, and vision. I’m glad that Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday was in January because I think it is a great time for all of us to pause and consider how we can help move our world forward this year. Please take a moment to read my three part blog about MLK that I wrote in 2012. If you have time for only one post, the second is my favorite. 🙂 Happy MLK day to each of you and remember, we...

Kate Skegg: Dare to Dream: Get Educated!

My Guest Blogger this week, Kate Skegg, is doing great work with the Illinois American Association of University Women (AAUW). We both attend a “Meet Up” where we learn about WordPress, blogging and social media. At our January meeting she filled us in on her latest project, The Dare to Dream: Get Educated event for Latina girls and their moms. She barely finished telling us about it before I asked her to be a guest blogger. I wanted more folks to hear about this model the AAUW has created. (You can read more about why I love...

Climbing to the Mountaintop, Part 3

Climbing to the Mountaintop, Part 3

I believe Martin Luther King, Jr. left more than his legacy when he was murdered. I believe he left us a plan. To be fair, I think this plan for social change was adapted from his study of Mahatma Gandhi and the methods of his successful civil resistance movement in India. King readily admitted to learning most of what he knew about civil disobedience, resistance and nonviolence from Gandhi. When describing the bus boycott in Montgomery in his autobiography by Clayborne Carson, King wrote, “Christ furnished the spirit and motivation while...

Climbing to the Mountaintop, Part 2

On Monday, in Part 1 of this three part post I told you why I think Martin Luther King, Jr. was so great and why we need him today. As I also mentioned, I am on the committee for DuPage County’s MLK celebration that happened Monday night. Let me tell you, it was something else. The energy was electrifying and the speakers were more than inspiring. Rev. Otis Moss, III from Trinity UCC in Chicago outdid himself! He reminded us that Rev. King didn’t accomplish all he did by himself because whenever someone is successful, there is always...

Climbing to the The Mountaintop, Part 1

Today is a great day for me—it’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! I am a committee member for the DuPage County MLK Celebration tonight at Elmhurst College. Click here for details. If possible, join us!! If you know me, you know I am a devotee of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I am a 52 year-old white mother of four living in the heart of the Midwest. My county, (DuPage is west of Chicago), is not the poster county for diversity. The 2010 census showed that we are 70% white, 5% black, 10% Asian, 13% Hispanic and 2% other. Sadly, I learned very...

Rev. Duncan Newcomer: The Coming Victory

I have to tell you that one of the greatest joys of this blog for me is to give voice to friends who haven’t caught the blogging bug yet but who have voices that need to be heard. My friend, Duncan Newcomer, really should have his own site. He has lots of important things to say. But until he creates his own, he is welcome to be a guest blogger on the Sacred Feminist. Thank you, Duncan, for your contribution. Enjoy! The coming victory. Just as love and care for mother earth is necessary for our survival, so welcoming the increasing...
