Upcoming Services

June 2: Weaving the Principles – This is the first of a nine Sunday series unpacking and challenging ourselves and each other with the core beliefs of Unitarian Universalism, the Seven Principles. Anna Tulou Orr will lead us in a discussion of the history of how the Principles came to be as we welcome the loom into the worship space to prepare to weave our faith into daily practice. The congregation’s annual meeting will immediately follow the service, so be sure to put the 5th Principle into practice by participating in this meeting.

June 9 – The 1st Principle: The inherent worth and dignity of every person
This Sunday Anna  Tulou Orr leads an exploration the First Principle of Unitarian Universalism, the inherent worth and dignity of every person. As the core or foundational belief from which all the other Principles emerge, recognizing the inherent worth and dignity of every being might sound simple, but consistently putting it into practice is challenging, to say the least. Come with an open mind and open heart, as we weave the first color onto the loom.

 June 16 – The 2nd Principle: Justice, equity, and   compassion in human relations
In adding the second color to our summer community weaving project, we acknowledge the emergence of the Second Principle of  Unitarian Universalism, affirming justice, equity, and compassion in human relations. The Second Principle in many ways acts as a lens, or pivot, to the Sixth Principle, which we see reflected the importance of conscientious interpersonal relations in opening our eyes to issues of justice and liberty in the broader community and in the world at large. With worship leader Anna Tulou Orr.

 
June 23 – The 3rd Principle: Acceptance of one another and the encouragement of spiritual  growth
Our Music Director, Kerry Morgiewicz, leads us in an exploration of the third principle, which embraces why we come together. As we explore what it really means, we will try to understand how the two parts of this principle are interconnected. Being part of a safe and mutually accepting space gives us the freedom to grow as individuals and as a community in ways that may be surprising.

June 30 – The 4th Principle: The free and responsible search for truth and meaning
Walker Hartman leads us in reflections on a conversation between the Velveteen Rabbit and the Skin Horse.
