Summer Series – “Lead Ourselves into the Well”
Our Summer Series this year uses a song as a touchstone: “We Shall Be Known” by MaMuse. Many recordings of the song can be found online, including one by the duo who wrote the song, Sarah Nutting & Karisha Longaker. You may recognize the song from a Sunday service earlier in the year when the UUFD choir performed it.
One line in the song in particular inspired our theme: “It is time we lead ourselves into the well.” As we imagine what those words might mean, we envision speakers telling their personal story about what leads them into a deeper, fuller spiritual life where they thrive – what leads them “into the well.”
We hope that our Summer Series will provide an opportunity to learn from each other the many ways to “lead in love,” as MaMuse encourages us to do during this “Great Turning.” The Great Turning is a name for the essential adventure of our time: a transition between eras, a shift from the Industrial Growth Society to a life-sustaining civilization. Joanna Macy speaks of the Great Turning as a spiritual revolution grounded in an awakening consciousness of our spiritual connection to one another and the living body of the Earth.

Down to the River
Let’s gather at Pine Song, near Vallacito Reservoir, to consider what moves us, what inspires us, and how community might serve as the “something larger” that keeps us whole and gives us meaning. Come on down!
