Unruly Bodies: Embracing (and Sharing) our Unique Stories

Dr. Terri Thrower

At some point, all are touched by illness, disability, aging, or loss of function. Our fear, pity, and awkwardness often accompany conversations about those inevitable changes, leading to silence and stigma rather than understanding. If we can’t talk about these issues, how can we embrace our changing selves or the changes in those we love?

Our Stories

2014.11.27cI have always been a Universalist, though I was unfamiliar with the term until much later in my life.  I believe that All-That-Is vibrates at the frequency of Love, so how could any "Father" damn His children to Hell?

Mind, I have lots of "less than orthodox" beliefs about reality and about the Divine.  I never seemed to fit in with any mainstream faith organization.  Somehow, I stumbled upon Mountain Light Unitarian Universalist Church and found that all of my "weird" beliefs would be tolerated, some even encouraged – so long as my personal search for Truth was both free and responsible.

This was the beloved community for which I had been searching.  I found a new family when I found Mountain Light and Unitarian Universalism.
