A Time to Heal or a Call to Action?

Sunday, February 28, 2021 at 10 AM

A virtual service led by Rev. Christie Anderson and Worship Associate Heidi Shaffer Bish.

What do you want from your church – renewed hope, spiritual growth, connection? This worship service will focus on two juxtaposed reasons: inner uplift and healing relative to a rallying call for social action. We will unpack the challenges of a church community in meeting our inner emotional needs while addressing the needs of those beyond our walls.

Just a Touch of Love

Sunday, February 14, 2021 at 10:00 AM

A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Eric van Baars.

Have you ever heard the old folk tale about the village that needed a new meeting hall? It’s a tale of disagreements, and greed, and forgetting what matters most. It’s a strange tale too, because it doesn’t have an ending! In this sermon and service, purchased by Eric van Baars at our Service Auction, we’re going to tell the story and using our imaginations and hopes for our future, we’re going to write our own ending together!

African American History Film Series

A six-session event beginning February 7, 2021

In recognition of Black History Month, the Race 4 Justice Team will be showing the 6-part PBS documentary The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross during February and March.

We will gather on Zoom at 1:30 on the following six Sundays:
   February 7, 14, 21, and
   March 7, 14, 21.
Each week we will watch a one-hour episode, after which Rev. Steven Protzman will lead a discussion.

 Written and presented by Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross chronicles the full sweep of the African-American experience, from the origins of the transatlantic slave trade to the reelection and second inauguration of President Barack Obama.  The series explores the evolution of the African-American people, as well as the multiplicity of cultural institutions, political strategies, and religious and social perspectives they developed — forging their own history, culture and society against unimaginable odds. 

The film is suitable for school-aged children, youth, and adults. So grab your after-church, after-RE lunch and use the Zoom link below to join in for the film and discussion.

Now What?

Sunday, February 7, 2021 at 10 AM

A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Diana Van Winkle.

As our nation begins a new chapter of its history, we continue to wrestle with the reality that our country is deeply divided. Is healing possible and what about accountability? What do we do now? How does Unitarian Universalism guide us in finding our way forward? Together we will wrestle with these difficult questions, discern who our faith asks us to be in the days to come, and how we can create a new story together.

A New Rising Fire

Sunday, January 31, 2021 at 10 AM

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

It is the time of Imbolc, the Pagan festival that celebrates the growing light and the promise of the earth awakening once again. It is also the festival of Brigid, the Celtic goddess of fire, spring, healing, and poetry. As we celebrate Brigid and Imbolc with stories, songs, and rituals, we will invite Brigid’s fire of creativity to rise inside us and guide us in bringing peace, justice, and hope to the world.
