Fix You: Every relationship challenge is an inside job
In "Fix You," Rev. Gretchen reminds us that we are each worthy of having thriving relationships... but in pursuit of that goal, we may attempt to fix others instead of going where change really begins: inside ourselves. Join Rev. Gretchen as she explores the work of relationship expert Esther Perel to help us start bringing the vibrancy back to our relationships.
Step Zero: What do you do before you begin?
Kick off the new year with “Step Zero” - what do you do before you begin? Originally delivered in January 2018 by Revs. Gretchen Haley and Kristen Psaki, this message from the vault explores what we need to let go of before we can move forward.
Deeper Episode 19: Making Room for Mystery
This week we pull from the archives for a little humor and a little practice. First, we revisit Rev. Sean's "Cereal: From This American Rice" then we dive into a contemplative practice to help us move through stress.
Deeper Episode 18: Waiting So the World Can Change
Waiting is a given, but how we wait is up to us. Revs. Gretchen and Sean explore how to develop patience in a culture that emphasizes immediate results and in a pandemic time when the wait never seems to end.
Deeper Episode 17: There is not enough time, thank god!
What would happen if you released the idea that there‘s never enough time? What if you stopped trying to master time and instead found freedom in its limitations?
Deeper Episode 16: Preppers
This week, we're kicking off our December series: Make Room, because this Holiday season we're inviting you to make room for joy, love, hope and being present to the moment. This first week of Make Room, Rev. Gretchen Haley draws on the story of Hanukkah, the cold war, Y2K, and the great resignation, to explore what it means to be prepared.
A dose of encouragement weekly
All of the speakers bring thought-provoking ideas and heartfelt encouragement to the table, making this podcast a bright addition to my weekly rotation.
Deep Spiritual and Practical Insights
I’ve recently come across UUism and I’m very impressed with this religion! The ministers at Foothills UU are wonderful teachers that are offering timely insights and clarity in our crazy world. Their new format (you can hear it in their “Deeper” series) is a very successful transition from releasing recorded messages to building a true podcast format around the Sunday messages of the Foothills ministers. I look forward to this podcast every week and cannot recommend it enough! If you’re needing spiritual support or thoughtful words to encourage you, look no further than this podcast!
