My Chalica Book: A Beginner's Guide (Third Edition)- Created by me, this booklet contains an introduction to Chalica, a resource page, a brief history of Chalica, and suggestions on how to celebrate and honor each principle with actions, food, gifts, books, and movies. 

The Accidental DRE - RE and Family Ministry ideas, musings and other resources.

Beyond Ramps and Restrooms - Within this blog you'll find links, resources, reviews and information about today's technology - and how that technology may be used to welcome people with disabilities in our congregations and beyond.



This Sunday,

December 6, 2015


All Ages: Why Do We Light This Flame? - Join us for an intergenrational Chalica service, today.  Chalica is a new and uniquely UU holiday.  This week long holiday was conceived in 2005 by seminarian Darlene Marshall.  It is an invitation to spend a day with each of our 7 principles - reflecting on, and putting each principle into action.  Typically, a chalice a lit each day of Chalica.  Join us as we learn the origin of the chalice, and hear about the brave men and women who were called to live their faith on the highest level.  Don't forget to bring your Guest At Your Table Boxes, we'll collect them during the service!
