An Interfaith Journey toward Compassion and Peace
Travel expert Rick Steves sees travel as a force for peace. Indeed that may be true, but the travel may just need to take place closer to home, wherever your home is. Touring the Holy Land with an interfaith group we met a Palestinian woman whose steadfast refusal to have enemies touched and inspired us.
Special music during this worship service by Tacoma Musical Playhouse musicians.
Rev. Mary Rhine lives in University Place with her husband Richard and cat Kimba. Mary attended an interfaith seminary, The Chaplaincy Institute, and was ordained as an interfaith minister in September 2016.
Transformation in Life’s Journey
This service will explore the four questions that psychotherapist and spiritual director Wayne Muller tells us that we must consider across our lifespan.

Way More Than a Hill of Beans
Do my efforts to make the world a better place REALLY matter? The short answer is “ABSOLUTELY!”
Not convinced? Our former ministerial intern, Matt Aspin, will be back for a visit and looks forward to sharing some inspiring examples to rekindle your hopes in these challenging times.
Growing Into Harmony
Since Unitarian Universalists have no creed, UUs often struggle with what it is that binds us together – what is it that makes us UUs? Some scholars respond to this question with, “covenant.” (One way of describing covenant is, “walking together in love.”) Our covenantal tradition is what links us to our forebears and to each other. What is it to walk together in love? What does it have to do with living with authenticity, integrity, joy, and resolve? How might it nourish us and inform how we live our lives?
The Rev. Tom Bozeman grew up UU in the Connecticut River Valley, attended the Evergreen State College and the Starr King School For The Ministry, and, after serving a few congregations in Massachusetts, is delighted to be back near the Salish Sea. He is the minister of the Evergreen UU Fellowship in Marysville.
The End of the World As We Know It
The book “Good Omens” by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett was made into a six-episode series on Amazon Prime and released in May. It offers some reflections on the nature of the world, and how we are in it. This service will dig into the apocalypse described therein and what it might mean for us.
