During this service we will remember Dr….

To See the World in a Grain of Sand

Sunday, January 10, 2021

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

William Blake wrote: “to see the world in a grain of sand…” I recently discovered the concept of fractals, infinite repeating patterns all tied together in a vast web beyond our comprehension, and how nature is made of fractals. Using our imaginations, visual images, readings, and songs, we will learn about fractals, our Seven…

Letting All Lights Shine

Sunday, January 3, 2021

A virtual service led by Kathy Kerns and Worship Associate Randy Bish.

It feels at times like we are living in a culture of critique.  While feedback from others can help us grow, it can also wear on our souls and even keep us from expressing ourselves.  As we embark on a new year, how can we help create a culture that allows everyone’s light to shine?

The Space Between

Sunday, December 27, 2020

A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Heidi Shaffer.

Kate R. Walker writes: “In between, liminal, that space where we wait. To stand on the threshold, waiting for something to end, and something new to arrive, a pause in the rumble of time.” As we find ourselves in the space between, waiting for the old year to end and the new year to arrive, with its promise and possibilities, we…

On This Shining Night

Thursday, December 24, 2020 7:30 PM

A virtual Christmas Eve service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associates Kathy Kerns and Heidi Emhoff-Wood.

There is a poem by James Agee that says: “Sure on this shining night of star made shadows round, kindness must watch for me…I weep for wonder” As we welcome Christmas once again, we will tell stories and sing songs about the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. Together we’ll reflect on th…

Visitors

Welcome visitors! We hope that you will find a spiritual home here and that you will be enriched in the liberal religious practice and heritage of Unitarian Universalism. The members of this church take pride in the fact that we embrace people of all races, ethnicities, ages, creeds, sexual orientations, and abilities. Unitarian Universalism is a religion that celebrates diversity of belief and is guided by seven principles and many sources of wisdom. Our congregation is where we come together in religious community to discern our values and live lives in alignment with them. Ours is a living tradition and we put our faith into action through social justice work in our communities and the wider world. In addition, we are a “Welcoming Congregation” which means we have taken part in a special program, designed by the UUA, for congregations that see a need to become more inclusive towards bisexual, gay, lesbian, and/or transgender people. The congregation is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association.

Newcomers are always welcome to visit our congregation. There is no formal conversion process, so becoming a Unitarian Universalist is simply a matter of self-identification. Membership is voluntary and does not require renouncing other religious affiliations or practices.

We invite you to explore our website, visit our congregation, and discover Unitarian Universalism!

There are seven principles which Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

Unitarian Universalism (UU) draws from many sources:

  • Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life;
  • Words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love;
  • Wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;
  • Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;
  • Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit;
  • Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.

These principles and sources of faith are the backbone of our religious community.
