A Book Presentation and Evening with Rev. Dr. Mark Morrison-Reed

Friday, April 25, 7-9 PM

 

There are many more African-American Unitarian Universalists than we know about. Find out who they were. Learn what it is like to grow up as an African-American UU. And join Rev. Dr. Mark Morrison-Reed to explore the question: “why does UUism find becoming more diverse such a struggle?”  He will read from several of his books, including the meditation manual, Voices from the Margins, UU history in Darkening the Doorways: Black Trailblazers, and Missed Opportunities in Unitarian Universalism. He’ll also talk about his soon to be released book, The Selma Awakening: How the Civil Rights Movement Tested and Changed Unitarians Universalism. Books will be available for sale.

SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICES 10:30 AM - Followed by coffee hour

 

March 30 - The Valley of the Shadow

Rev. Sandra Fees

The 23rd Psalm assures us we are not alone in our journeys through the valley of the shadow of life. As we walk through the shadows of our lives, where do we Unitarian Universalists turn for comfort?

 

April 6 - An Inconspicuous Prayer

Rev. Sandra Fees

This morning we’ll consider the ways we pray as Unitarian Universalists, including some that are so inconspicuous we may not even think of them as prayer.This morning we will also take a special collection for our Student Minister, Robyn Evans, to support her development as a minister.


April 13 - Mantras to Malas, Meditations to I Spy 

Robyn Evans, Student Minister

It's how we get connected.... Exploring the many ways in which we stay connected to self, each other- and that "Something Else."


April 20 - The Velveteen Rabbit: An Intergenerational Easter Pageant 

Rev. Sandra Fees, Maria Krauss, Director of Religious Education, Elizabeth Bromley, Interim Director of Music

Based on the classic tale, this morning’s service helps us explore the idea of transformation. When we have courage and openness, we discover we can become “real” and live life most fully.


April 27 - A Sacred Intention

Rev. Sandra Fees

Setting a sacred intention is said to be important on the spiritual journey. What makes an intention sacred and how can it benefit our spiritual work?
