    Annual Water Ceremony

    Annual Water Ceremony

    ASL Interpreter Provided

    Sharing the ritual of filling a communal bowl with water invites us to renew our commitment to community, this spiritual community, and its part in the interconnected web of life. This ritual reminds us of the unique gifts each of us brings, the importance of pausing to nurture and support each other, and our collective responsibility to one another and the world. All are welcome to this intergenerational service of renewal celebrated by many other Unitarian Universalist congregations at this time of year.

    Charity: Perfection or Problem?

    Charity: Perfection or Problem?

    From many religious perspectives, Charity is considered the ultimate perfection of the human spirit. Charity is grounded in values of generosity, compassion, and love. In our contemporary culture, Charity can be viewed more skeptically - at best considered an inadequate response to human suffering or at worst a source of disempowerment and cause of social problems.

    This worship service will explore the idea of Charity, how it can be both problematic and a positive inspiration for living a more generous, loving life.

    I am the Other

    I am the Other

    Our guest speaker is Rev. Donald Brewington from Huston-Tillotson University.

    The sermon presentation takes a look at the story of the “Woman at the well” and how Jesus deals with her as the ‘other’, allowing her to be made whole becoming a part of the larger community. It is a lesson on how we treat the other and how we when feeling like the ‘other’ can find completeness or wholeness.

    Why Would We Ever Want To Leave This Planet?

    Why Would We Ever Want To Leave This Planet?

    Humanity has so many immediate, terrestrial, problems that it can be difficult to remember that we are just one planet in a vast universe. This Sunday, we ask if we might have a moral obligation to explore space and we examine how science fiction helps us to ask questions to which we have not yet needed answers.
