Lamentation, Imagination, Creation

This worship is for those of you who are still a bit hung over with grief from the past year or the year we’ve just begun, and are gingerly trying to muster hope. We Unitarian Universalists are known for our optimism. We don’t grieve well. We aren’t versed in the ways of lamentation. And yet that is the way through to a new way. Come let us lament together and then imagine and create.

Resiliency as Resistance

“And I’ll give you hope, when hope is hard to find. And I’ll bring a song of love, and a rose in the winter time.”

I find myself humming this beloved hymn a lot these days. What could self-care and community care look like as a form of resistance?

Broken Hallelujah

Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” invites a broken hallelujah. Can there be wholeness and brokenness at the same time?

The TUU Sees will provide special music for this service.

Not My Table, Hon: Finding *Our* Work

What is it we are called to do? It’s often hard to discern what we’re meant to be doing and what isn’t ours to pick up. Do you have difficulty saying no? Or saying yes? We’ll consider the art of discernment in finding what our own work is in the world.

Pouring into Covenant

As the program year of the congregation begins, we gather in a community of all ages to remember our connections to one another and to our faith. Please bring a little water from your summer adventures to share in the service.
