During most of the year, our Sunday morning worship service schedule includes a 10 a.m. service for families (children and adults) and a 10:30 a.m. service for adults (while children attend religious education classes). The service and the religious education classes both end at 11:30 a.m. and are followed by a time of refreshment and fellowship.
Services not following that schedule are indicated.
September 29 “Raise a Noise”
This evening at sundown is the Jewish New Year; with the turning of the year comes a chance for renewal. Let us renew our commitment to hope, however hopeless we may feel. This paradox calls us: we work for the common good regardless of any expectation of a good outcome, and in so doing we can find our way to flourishing.
Our October theme is Belonging
October 6 Though We Have Broken Our Vows a Thousand Times
Our Jewish friends will be observing Yom Kippur this week, the holiest day of the Jewish year, a day to atone for sins. As Unitarian Universalists we may not be comfortable with the language of “sin.” Still, to reckon with how we may have failed ourselves or one another opens the possibility of transformation. This sermon will focus on the sin of racism and how racism has arbitrated who “belongs” and who is an “outsider” in our culture.
October 20 Whose Is This?
My two-year-old is very concerned about what’s hers, and making sure everyone in the sandbox knows it: “Mine!” This morning we will consider: what belongs to us, and to what do we belong?
October 27 All Souls
A community of remembrance is a community of belonging. As part of our traditional All Souls service, you will be invited to light a candle and to name loved ones who have died. We will reflect on grief and loss, and the power of love to move us through it all.
