Our Upcoming Services:

 

Our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service – “The Birth of Compassion,” led by Rev. Telos Whitfield. Please join us for a special service of music, favorite carols, words, and silence as we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the compassion for all, especially the forgotten ones. We will honor the light together, and the power of compassion and community! 

Read Rev. Elaine Bomford's recent sermon "A Light Shines in the Darkness" as she explores approaches to Bethlehem and the nativity of Jesus Christ."                                                      Read sermon here >>>

Light was shining in the darkness,

and darkness did not master it.

Genuine light - the kind that provides light for everyone -

was coming into the world.

 

Sunday, December 15 – “Concerning Joy and Donkeys,” with guest speaker Keith Penniman. On this third Sunday of Advent, whose theme is Joy, Penniman will endeavor to pin down three lessons about joy through the telling of three donkey tales.

Sunday, December 22 – “Winter Solstice Tune Up,” led by Rev. Elaine Bomford. Our 6th UU Source is “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.” The Winter Solstice invites us to tune in to pagan wisdom, tune up, and get in sync with nature's rhythms.  

This service is followed by Winter UU World Discussion, for more information. 

Welcome!

Thoughts and Meditations:

 

           If we can muster up that degree of commitment and get away from the uniquely American perception that if something can't be done immediately it isn't worth doing, then I think the Hunger Movement, this small but growing minority of us, can have a truly significant impact.
