Services held Sundays @ 10 AM
September 22nd - "Our Larger Faith Community"
led by Rev. Jay Wolin
We are members of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). We are very intentional about calling it an association instead of a denomination. What does it mean to be an Association of Congregations instead of just a Denomination? What is our relationship between our Congregation and the UUA, as well as between our Congregation and other UU Congregations? Or in other words, what is expected from each other? In addition, I will share some highlights from this past Summer's Annual Gathering of Congregations (General Assembly) in Spokane, Washington.
Adult Forum Sunday Sept 22 @ 9 AM
Building the Community We Dream About ...
Continuing Sept 22 and Sept 29, this is the second of a three part series that will encourage participants to:
* Recognize that some experiences can create positive feelings of inclusion (mattering) and others can create feelings of exclusion (marginality)
* Hear stories of mattering and marginality from Unitarian Universalists with a variety of ethnic and racial identities
* Reflect on personal experiences of inclusion and marginalization
"What is true is that for Unitarian Universalism to move into a vibrant future, we will need to mine our past for stories of resistance to oppression, stories of openness to new ways of being religious, stories of transformation that have built new understandings into our narrative of who we are." - Rev. William G. Sinkford
