Speaker: Erien Babcock

Erien Babcock found the world of Unitarian Universalism as a very young adult during her first military assignment. She is a student at Starr King School for the Ministry and a ministerial intern at Tahoma UU. As someone who loves truth in education, she worked in youth programming in the past and has a strong advocacy history. Erien seeks to walk the path of military chaplaincy, and this internship is one of her final steps. She is a lover of Star Wars, science fiction in general, comic books, and ice skating. Erien’s husband, Ian, proudly serves in the military. Her blended family has four children who teach the uniqueness of each experience without even trying.

“The spirit of a person’s life is ever shedding some power, just as a flower is steadily bestowing fragrance upon the air.” ~ Thomas Starr King

Pluck of the Irish

As we celebrate all things Irish in the month of March, join us to explore the traditions of early Irish faith practices.

This service will be the first of three sermons by Erien in collaboration with congregants who “won” our FUNdraiser silent auction opportunity to work on a sermon topic with our Ministerial Intern. Luck of the Irish? Join us to learn more!

The Wisdom to Know the Difference

This phrase is part of the Serenity Prayer written by Reinhold Niebuhr, a conservative theologian from the mid-20th century. Niebuhr was a balance to the optimism in liberal theology back then, worried about how human beings can be led astray. His reflections may be helpful for us in these difficult times. What wisdom do we need?

Brittany Henderson will provide music for this worship service. Brittany recently played the lead role of Laura in “Beehive” at the Tacoma Musical Playhouse, and has appeared in several other local productions. She has a BA in Theatre Arts from University of Puget Sound, and is Dean of Student Affairs at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle.

Love Makes Us Strong

Our whole church worship will focus on how love makes us more resilient and able to offer our love to the world. We’ll sing, write love letters, create a few tokens for the world. Bring the whole family and your whole selves for a great morning together!

Ansamblu will provide music for this worship service.
