Sunday, August 19 ~ 10 a.m.

Rev. Connie Simon and Meredith Plummer, DFP

Water Communion


Streams, rivers and the largest oceans are made up of individual drops of water – each of them unique and from different sources, all coming together in one living body that has the power to create, change and even destroy life. Our congregation is a living body as well, and each of us is an individual drop of water in it, bringing our own unique talents and gifts to the whole. As we embark on this new ministry together, please join me in a communal pooling of the gifts, hopes and promises we will bring to community over the coming year. Bring your own sacred water.

Vespers

Join us for Vespers in the sanctuary. Held every fourth Wednesday, this candlelight service offers a chance to escape the noise and demands of our busy lives. This month’s theme is the healing power of water.

Who is WE?

For such a small word, “we” is very loaded. It’s easy to assume in a group or a congregation that everyone shares the same values or sees the world the same way you do. In truth, our communities are made up of individuals with a variety of identities – racial, ethnic, social, political, gender, ability, etc. How do we begin to embrace the intersectionality of our identities in ways that are affirming and inclusive? How do we make sure that everyone is part of the “we”?

The Big Why

As a faith tradition, Unitarian Universalism is committed to peace, justice, democracy and the building of Beloved Community. What is the source of that commitment? While our denomination honors individual and spiritual diversity and doesn’t espouse any particular creed, there are common themes and deep theological roots that inform our quest for fairness in the world. Join us as we explore the connections between theology, spirituality and justice and how they inspire us to do this important work.
