Kase Takes on Theology – Cynthia A. Kase

I am completely inspired by reading the wisdom of the magnificent women I know. Having several blogs and websites is like having different styles of homes in different locals, I can express the variety of themes that excite me.

One of the themes I care about is theology and spirituality. My Doctor of Divinity degree is inspired by my long family history of Episcopalian and Lutheran ministry and how the study of the Unitarian Universalist Church Faith aligns with my heart.

I met Cynthia at a Tucson Women’s Blogger gatherimg and felt her strong, heartfelt need to express her expertise in understanding why spiritual history is important.

“We create spirituality and community beyond boundaries, working for more justice and more love in our own lives and in the world. Unitarian Universalism affirms and promotes seven Principles, grounded in the humanistic teachings of the world’s religions. Our spirituality is unbounded, drawing from scripture and science, …” uua.org/beliefs

My Sassy Notions

I have vivid memories of my mom at the sewing machine when I was a child. I watched in awe as she turned pieces of fabric into clothes for my sister and I. She studied fashion design at The Art Institute of Chicago where she learned to draft her own patterns and produce clothing that looked store bought. My sister was taking Home EC and from my view was on her way to fashion freedom. I desperately wanted to learn too. I begged my mom to teach me to sew and eventually she relented.

My mother had many talents; teaching was not one of them. A combined lack of talent and patience led to frustration on steroids. The blue overall pants, I so desperately wanted to sew myself,  were constructed beautifully by her. I hated wearing those pants; a symbol of my failure.

I never lost my desire to learn and eventually…
