Sunday, October 4, 2020

A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Heidi Emhoff-Wood.

October 4th is World Animal Day and the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals and ecology. Together we will affirm our seventh principle, the interdependent web of existence of which we are each a part, and celebrate our beloved companions who share life’s journey with us with a Blessing of the Animals. We also welcome Eric Noden as our special musical guest for this service.

We Begin Again in Love

Sunday, September 27, 2020

A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Elaine Bowen

UU minister Nancy McDonald Ladd argues that as UUs, we are too optimistic and that deepening our tradition will require a theology that includes traditional religious language such as sin and forgiveness. On this Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, we will reflect on the Jewish yearly ritual of naming failures and mistakes and then seeking to make right the harm that has been done to others as a practice that can help us grow spiritually.

Where Calls the Heart

Sunday, September 20, 2020

A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Lori McGee.

Unitarian Universalism claims at least one miracle, the story of how Universalist John Murray came from England and while his ship was stuck on a sandbar, was convinced to preach the message of Universalism in a local meetinghouse. Two hundred and fifty years later, we will reflect on the truth of Universalism as we celebrate Shared Ministry Sunday and ask, as John Murray did of life, where does our heart call us?

Filling Up Your Bucket

Sunday, September 13, 2020

Led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Heidi Emhoff-Wood

Eleanor Brownn says: “When you take time to replenish your spirit it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.” September’s Soul Matters theme is renewal, which invites us to reflect on the need to care for our bodies and spirits with rest. Together we will reflect on some of the ways we can take time to renew ourselves so that we are strengthened for the journey. During this service, we will also commission and bless our RE teachers as a new year of religious education begins

Play Is Radical Resistance

Sunday, September 6, 2020

A virtual service led by Elizabeth Reilly, CLM Candidate and Worship Associate Kathy Kerns.

Who couldn’t benefit from some lightening of the spirit? The spiritual practice of play belongs to all of us, not just human children. What playful activity transports you, brings you joy, provides your spirit with respite and renewal?  Let’s celebrate playing for its radical power

to resist succumbing to the heaviness of our hurting world and time, while we explore why it is necessary to the well-being of body, mind and soul.
