This Sunday…The 3rd Principle: “Acceptance, Encouragement and Spiritual Growth”

This Sunday, the service is about our 3rd Principle – affirming and promoting acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations.  Some thoughts to ponder before the service:

  • Tolerance and acceptance are not the same thing
  • One another includes our self
  • Spirituality and humanism are not mutually exclusive
  • How do these concepts play out in our congregation and the larger world

This is Soup and Bread Sunday. If you are able, please bring something to share. All are welcome. 2015EmilyBurr

 

Christmas Is….

On Sunday, December 20th 2015, Rev. Emily Burr will present a sermon entitled: “Christmas Is…“ Christmas as it is celebrated today in America is actually a very UU holiday.  It has elements of many religions from diverse countries.  As with other parts of our culture, we have created a holiday that is our own. Robin Charles will be our musician and Cindy Clarenbach our Worship Associate.
