Earth Day – April 22, 2018

Led by the Worship Arts Team

This day – Earth Day — we will be celebrating the specific passions, knowledge, and expertise that so many of our members have about the earth — planting and harvesting, spending time outside in nature, how/why the earth nurtures you and you nurture it back, where your passion came from and/or how you’re passing it on.

 

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

Working Spirit – April 15, 2018

Led by Rev. Thomas Bodie and Worship Associate Jeff Marsh

All faith traditions challenge adherents to consider what “right livelihood” might mean in practice.  This morning, our guest in the pulpit, Rev. Thomas Bodie, will lead us through a consideration of spirituality and our professional identities–do you feel “called” to your work?

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

The Green Blade Riseth – April 1, 2018

Led by Rev. Renee Ruchtozke and Worship Associate Lori Fatchet-McGee

Underneath our forest floors lies an actual network of mutuality and connection that gives birth to new life again and again. Likewise, underneath our culture of force and exploitation lie seeds of human mutuality that also offer renewal. All ages will celebrate this Eastertide with stories and songs of hope for a better future for both people and planet.

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

Change Our Words, Change the World – March 18, 2018

Led by Rev. Joan Van Becelaere and Worship Associate Lisa Thiel

There is power in our words and our stories. Our words can tear down and destroy, or they can impart grace and hope to support all who hear them.   We have a choice of which kinds of words to use and which kinds of stories to tell as we speak with to our spouses, children, colleagues, and strangers.  Destructive language can damage lives.  Grace-filled language can transform lives for the good.   How can we use the power of words wisely?

Rev. Joan Van Becelaere is a UUA Congregational Life Consultant and the new Executive Director/Administrator of UU Justice Ohio.  Prior to working with the UUA, she was the vice-president for student services at the Iliff School of Theology in Denver, CO, where she also taught UU polity to seminarians.  She lives in Columbus, Ohio, with her spouse, Jerry, and two felines (Hezekiah and Zachariah).

 

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