a positive path for spiritual living

Proud to Be Maladjusted

Reflecting upon a lesser-known speech by Martin Luther King Jr., Rev. Crystal talks about the need to be happily maladjusted to a world of inequality, violence and economic disparity; to rise above our complacency with the world as it is and bear witness to a greater reality.

Remaining Awake

This talk was inspired by a message delivered by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King at Oberlin College in June 1965, “Remaining Awake Through a Great Revolution.” It’s a call for all of us to remain awake and open to Divine inspiration during our own turbulent, revolutionary times.

Let God’s Love Manifest in the World

Epiphany Sunday celebrates the end of the Christmas season and the manifestation of Christ in the world, tying together both the story of the Magi’s visit and the beginning of Jesus’ ministry at his baptism by John. That ministry continues as each of us allows God’s love to manifest in and through our own lives.
