We live among wild animals every day. They’re all around us every day if we just stop and notice them! In honor of World Animal Day and the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals and ecology, we will appreciate the animals we share our planet with, reflect on our Seventh Principle, and celebrate our beloved animal companions who share life’s journey with us with a Blessing of the Animals.
A drive through animal blessing will also be available at the church from 12 pm to 1 pm this Sunday. You can bring your pet(s) or a picture of them for a brief blessing and treat.
In the hymn “Wake Now My Senses” we sing of “having a vision of ministry clear”. As we prepare to begin a new chapter of UUCK’s story, we have ideas about our future, but do we have a clear vision of what we will do together? As we celebrate our annual Shared Ministries Sunday, we will reflect on how we are called to serve each other and the world. We will also commission Rev. Christie Anderson as an Affiliated Community Minister of UUCK.

How have you coped with the pandemic? Has your answer to the questions of what to do or how to manage life sometimes been “not a clue”? Together we will reflect on the last eighteen months as (at the suggestion of a congregation member for a sermon) I share with you some of my joys, struggles, and ways I’ve sustained myself and draw on our faith as a source of strength and hope in the uncertain days to come.

“Reach the stars, fly a fantasy, dream a dream, and what you see will be”. As we celebrate ingathering, bless backpacks, and begin our Fall Religious Education program, the title song from “A Never Ending Story” invites all of us to share our creativity and adventurous spirits to create our unique story together. Weather permitting, we will have an in-person service outdoors on the church campus plus the option to attend via Zoom.

Although we think of Labor Day as the end of summer with a long weekend, picnics, parades, and time to go back to school, Labor Day is a day set aside to honor workers. We will reflect on the history of Labor Day, how unions and organized labor struggled for fair wages, good working conditions, and a better quality of life, and how our UU Principles and values inform our understanding of Labor Day.
