A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Camille Pavlicek-Fauser
John Schaar says: “The future is not some place we are going to, but a place that is created.” As we celebrate our second year together and prepare to start a new year, we will look back at who we’ve been and how we’ve lived our mission and vision, and reflect on the future we can create together as we continue being a people who seek to inspire love, seek justice, and grow in community.
Our Unitarian Universalist First Principle refers to respecting the inherent worth and dignity of every person, yet we know that not all people receive the same degree of attention in their living or in their passing. This service is about acknowledging and attending to others, including those who may be forgotten or overlooked. In this Memorial Day service we will honor those who have died (including veterans), and reflect on how we can honor one another in our everyday lives.
Note to caregivers of young and/or sensitive children: as part of the service we will remember those who have died during military service, by suicide, or through working for social justice causes. Families might want to consider whether to have children continue to attend the service after the time for all ages.
A virtual Sunday service led by Director of Religious Education Colleen Thoele and Children’s Religious Education Committee Chair Amanda Rome.
Our church strives to be a place where everyone belongs. From the babies in the nursery to our elders, our religious education program brings all ages to the journey of growing in faith together. This service will celebrate the children, youth and teachers of our beloved community through story, song and spirit.
Rev. Lynn Ungar writes of flowers: “Hold these things together in your sight-purple, crimson,magenta, blue.” Today we gather to share a virtual bouquet of flowers and celebrate flower communion, a Unitarian Universalist ritual created by Rev. Norbert Capek in Czechoslovakia in 1923. Together as a community of all ages we will offer one another beauty and hope as we renew our commitment to cherish each another and all of life.
