What happens when your plans and dreams do not happen? Are not fulfilled? While this might mean that your vision was flawed, that’s probably not true. How do we go on when this happens? Listen to the sermon:
Rev. Cyndi Simpson
Honoring a UU tradition, we will celebrate our ingathering with the sharing of our water. We will also enter into covenant with our new DRE, Jillian Post, and have a reception for her during coffee hour. Bring water from a source that matters to you in some way!
Our monthly worship theme is Vision. What does it mean to be a people of vision, of dreams, of purpose, as a religious community? How does it change how we live?
What does it mean to have lives that are in ‘balance,’ as individuals and as a community? How do we know if this is even something to strive for, by ourselves or together? As we begin another congregational year, considering this could be crucial.
The Reverend Olympia Brown, Universalist, was the first woman fully ordained to the ministry in the United States (1863). Her life story is that of a person devoted to what many might consider to be lost causes! Who was this amazing woman and what can we learn from her?
It is hard to persevere in life without the gift of forgiveness. What does it mean truly to forgive? And how in the world do we do that – and what is the result?
Our worship theme this month is Perseverance. What helps us to keep going, especially when times are hard? What does it mean to persevere, especially when we fail? We will look to a particular spiritual practice for guidance!
What does it mean to be a people of blessing? Where and how do we find blessings in our life and what can they mean for us as Unitarian Universalists?
Observing a longtime UU tradition, we will observe Flower Communion by bringing flowers to share with one another, while learning more about the amazing life of the Reverend Norbert Čapek who created it.
Today, we will be honoring and expressing our appreciation for our new members, our RE teachers and a new baby in our midst! These are ALL great blessings for our congregation and will be a wonderful lead-in to our Annual Meeting after worship!
