    March 8, 2020- A Time For Everything

    March 8, 2020- A Time For Everything

    At First Universalist, we promise to give, receive, and grow together. Sometimes though, we don’t have a whole lot to give. What does it mean to engage in the spiritual practice of receiving? How can we lean into the strength of community, trusting that there is more than enough to go around, trusting that we will be held, and that there is so much to learn by receiving? 
    Call to Worship- Satya Mamdani (:21)
    Reading- Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (4:41)
    Sermon- Rev. Jen Crow (6:24)

    March 1, 2020- Mine, Mine, Mine

    March 1, 2020- Mine, Mine, Mine

    As soon as a toddler starts to learn to grasp they also learn to claim objects as theirs, but whet happens when we hold onto to this behavior in daily lives as adults? What are ideas and stories we holding on to? When does sharing cease to be a natural instinct? The culture of MINE limits our ability to grow and evolve authentically with others. This Sunday, we explore what might happen as we practice creating a culture of sharing in our families, our communities and our earth.
    Wisdom Story- Sue Searing (:31)
    Sermon- Rev. Karen Hutt (6:50)

Mindful Words for people on the Go

Sometimes it's hard to be in the Now when you're on the Go. This podcast is a great way to listen to universalist messages while sitting at your computer or on the go with your iPod. I find I can't always attend services and as a result long for the grounding thoughts presented in the messages. I also find that commuting gives lots of opportunities to listen to audiobooks/podcasts on my iPod. Thanks for merging the two into a great service to the congregation!

Grateful to First Univ. for this new service!

Thanks so much for putting the sermons online. There's always something I missed or want to hear again. Now I don't have to pepper Kate or Ted with questions after services. Fantastic!
