Martial Art of Unconditional Joy – Erika Ebbeson

Be good to yourself. If you don’t take care of your body, where will you live?’. -Kobi Yamada.

Living Joyously – Crystal Zerfoss

The theme for July is Joy. Our lives are filled with so many tasks and responsibilities, thoughts and feelings, activities, concerns, and sleep. How do we seek out joy in our lives?

Truth in Transition – Martin Emilio

If you approach events with a narrative in mind, then you interpret them through that lens. In that moment, that is true. But, looking back on those events through a new lens, a new truth can come to light. Transformation never ends, it only changes; yet in that change is truth. The journey from Amelia Grace to Martin Emilio.

Women Who Persist – Marian Stewart

On this Mother’s Day we honor all women – and the spirit of persistence. While some may believe that this quality is new, or even political, persistence is a trait of spirit, will, and gut that has been well-honed over millennia. It is also spiritual. Speaker – Rev. Dr. Marian Stewart, who was Northlake’s minister for 9 years.

More than Attitude – Marian Stewart

Is Unitarian Universalism more than those bright yellow shirts with the L-O-V-E letters across the front? Are we deeper than being on the front lines of justice-seeking? What is at the core of who we are? What guides/motivates/sustains us? If we peel away the d-i-y, believe-anything-you-want perceptions, is there a common core that is deeply spiritual, profoundly human, and able to transform the world – and us? Speaker: Rev. Dr. Marian Stewart, Northlake’s minister from 2009 – 2017.

Living Life on One Leg – Janelle Durham

Identity has many layers: our self-image – how we perceive ourselves, our projected image – how we present ourselves, and our external identities – how others perceive us based on their own experience and biases. Many influences shape our identity – some are circumstances beyond our control. But much of our identity is based on the choices we make and the actions we take – how we choose to respond to those circumstances. Speaker: Janelle Durham, Northlake Board President.
