Thus Do We Covenant — Sunday, August 19, 2018

Led by Rev. Steven Protzman with Worship Associate Carolyn Schlemmer

In the absence of a creed, dogma or doctrine, we bind ourselves to this community and to one another in service to our shared life and work through covenant, a promise to walk together towards the life we seek to lead.  This service will explore the history of covenant in Unitarian Universalism, look at covenant as the heart of our UU theology, and invite us to reflect together on what it means to be a community of covenant.  

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

The Space Between — Sunday, August 5, 2018

Led by Rev. Kristina Spaude

We live in a highly divided world, one where we are separated by politics, fear, the news media, and many other ways. It’s hard to remember to look for points of connection and common experience sometimes. What if, in our interactions with others and ourselves, we focused on the relationship, thinking that it is in the relationship that the holy lives?

Sunday services are offered at 9:45 and 11:30 AM with nursery care available during all services for children preschool age and younger.

Patching Chindis: On Brokenness — Sunday, July 22, 2018

Led by Rev. Robin Landerman Zucker, Interim Minister, UU Church of Meadville (PA)  with Worship Associate Lisa Thiel

Among the multitude of Hindu deities, there is a goddess named “Akhilandeshvari” – the “Never Not Broken Goddess.”  She is anything but frail, though – she carries a trident and rides in on a crocodile!  As humans, we are also “never-not-broken,” yet how do you relate to our brokenness? Do we despise it? Embrace it? Feel empathy for it? Want to soothe it? Experience its intense pathos and pain and seek to transform it? We’ll ride along with Akhillandeshvari, as we explore these questions through an Eastern spiritual lens. In this participatory service, we’ll also hear a classic Indian folk tale and engage with Rev. Robin in a ritual of healing.

Sunday service is offered 10 AM with nursery care available for children Pre-school age and younger.

Secrets and Elephants — Sunday, July 8, 2018

Led by Rev. Dave Clements and Worship Associate Carolyn Schlemmer

Secrets can be defined as those experiences, thoughts, sometimes feelings that we choose to keep from view or to talk about. There are some secrets that are by their very nature contain information whose authorized disclosure could endanger lives or security. But then there are those secrets that become “elephants in the room.” These can be questions, problems, solutions or issues that many people if not all know about but choose to ignore because to do otherwise could cause embarrassment, sadness or even trigger an argument. What happens when secrets become elephants in the room?

Sunday service is offered at 10 AM with nursery care available for preschool age and younger.
