Wage Peace

Led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Elaine Bowen

Poet Judyth Hill invites us to “Wage peace”, to use our breath and our ears and our hands and our hearts to not only actively work for peace, but to act as if peace is already a reality. As we thank and honor our veterans for their service to our country on this Veteran’s Day, we will reflect on our sixth principle, the goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all.

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

We Remember Them

Sunday, October 27, 2019

Led by Rev. Steven Protzman with Worship Associate Camille Pavlicek-Fauser

“So long as we live, they too shall live, for they are now a part of us, as we remember them.”  The words of this Reformed Jewish prayer remind us that our loved ones live on in our hearts as long as we remember them.  In keeping with the many spiritual traditions of remembrance during this time of the year, we will once again remember and honor our beloved dead with rituals and songs, love and tears.

Longing, Belonging, and Beloved

Sunday , October 20, 2019

Led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Kathy Kerns

Unitarian Universalists often use the phrase “Beloved Community”, a concept which was coined by Josiah Royce, who spoke of a community of memory and hope, and then enlarged by Martin Luther King Jr.  How does this vision of the world challenge us as a community to respond to the fundamental human longing to belong and be loved?  Following the second service, there will be a theme discussion group of the month’s Soul Matters theme of “Belonging”.

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

An Apple for the Journey

Sunday, October 13, 2019

Led by Rev. Steven Protzman, Director of Religious Education Colleen Thoele, and Worship Associate Elena Kline

The apple, a symbol of autumn, has long been associated with the body, especially healing and good health, but it also represents spiritual gifts, including abundance, love, gratitude and generosity, that help us make our life’s journey more meaningful.  We will gather as a community of all ages to give thanks for life’s many gifts and enjoy the taste of autumn with an apple communion.  We will also commission and bless our musicians.

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

Begin Again in Love

Sunday, October 6, 2019

Led by Lori McGee and Worship Associate Elaine Bowen

Yom Kippur is the holiest of days for the Jewish people.  During Yom Kippur, Jews around the world will spend their days fasting, praying in atonement and repentance, and asking for forgiveness from God for wrong-doings over the past year.  What can Unitarian Universalists learn from this centuries long tradition of atonement and new beginnings?  This service will provide some insights to this high holy day and offer a ritual of atonement and beginning again in love.  

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