In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we will explore the feminine aspect of the Divine by celebrating Brigid, who is both the mother goddess and a saint of Ireland. With songs, stories, and rituals, we will reflect on Brigid’s journey from goddess of fire, poetry, childbirth and healing, to patron saint of scholars and poets, midwives, babies, and travelers, and invoke her healing power and wisdom for our own life journeys.

Nourishing Our Hearts for Social Justice: A Revival

Sunday, March 10, 2019

Led by Chris Crass and Worship Associate Rev. Steven Protzman

As the veils continue to fall and the horrors of white supremacy, sexual assault, and systemic oppression are exposed and challenged through social justice movements like Black Lives Matter, MeToo, and the struggles for immigrant, reproductive and LGBTQ rights, we must nourish our hearts, minds, bodies and souls to continue to rise, to meet the day with love and courage, to live our values in our congregation, communities and country.  Join us for a social justice revival service to help nourish us in these times.

Sunday services are offered at 9:45 and 11:30 AM with nursery care available during both services.

A Single Step

Sunday, March 3, 2019

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” –Laozi in the Tao Te Ching. 

Every journey, of course, must begin at the beginning but why is that beginning so often the hardest part?  What keeps our feet rooted in place?  This service will explore the ways we can overcome the difficulties of that first step.

Sunday services are offered at 9:45 and 11:30 AM with nursery care available during both services.

A Crisis of Trust

Sunday, February 17, 2019

Led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Elaine Bowen

There’s a saying that goes: “In God we trust. All others we polygraph.” In this age where fake news, divisive politics, and increasing alienation has led to what author Robert Morley calls a “crisis of trust” in our leaders, our government, our institutions, and each other, what does it mean for us to be a community of trust? How might Unitarian Universalism inform the larger conversation about trust and accountability?
