Reconciling towards Healing and Freedom

Rev. Alexandre, our guest today, will continue our discussion of reconciliation. He will engage with Rev. Bryan’s sermon from the 7th and asks “How can we reconcile the good, the bad, the ugly, the joys and sorrows so we can flow towards healing and freedom from suffering?” Worship Associate – Beverly McMillan, Music – Chris Perske.

Rev. Alexandre, (they/them), is the minister of Auburn Sierra Foothills Unitarian Universalist Church. Rev. Alexandre followed a circuitous path to UU, having been ordained in the United Methodist Church. After the UMC doubled down on homophobic persecution, he took sabbatical in his home country of Brazil. As he says, “I once again felt called and allowed to reconcile my Christian roots while rekindling my Buddhist, Yogic and eclectic mystical practices, along with my affinity for Sufism.”
