We Are Looking For A Minister

“Our congregation voted overwhelmingly to start the search process for a contract minister.  Over 90% of us have never been in a UU congregation with a minister.  We seek a minister to nurture our spiritual growth, expand our understanding of UU history, and cement our place as a recognized religious presence in Texoma, comprised of towns scattered along both the Oklahoma and Texas side the Red River and Lake Texoma.  We are the only liberal religious community drawing mostly from six of the communities with a total population in excess of 140,000 residents and growing.  We are rich in potential of becoming a vibrant voice in an overwhelming fundamentalist area.  Read more about us here.

Interdependence: Liberatory Intersections

Safety. Re-Imagining. Possibility. Resilience. These themes have been the backbone of this year’s 30 Days of Love, with each offering extending to us the opportunity to hone our ability to pause, listen, and receive even as the world around us continues its frenetic hum. We hope that these weekly gifts from our siblings in faith have invited you to breathe deeply, feeling – even if just for a moment – a sense of connection with kindred spirits who share a soul-deep yearning for justice and wholeness.

At the most basic level, spiritual practice is spending regular, intentional time turning away from despair and fear, toward connection and commitment. At Side With Love, we believe this kind of spiritual practice is what makes sustained organizing for justice possible. Without making space in our lives to purposefully strengthen the musculature of imagination and hope, the soul of our movements atrophies and the dream of liberation becomes an empty fantasy.
