Service: “Redder Apples” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons

April 22 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

We celebrate Earth Day by honoring our planet -- cradle, homestead, prop-master, and sepulcher of humanity’s dramas. While science lays our superstitions about the forces of nature to rest, our appreciation for the earth’s delicate balances and feedback loops must grow, or we risk extinction like other species before us. In the soil of humility, our best wisdom is found. We will share a ritual blessing of dust and ashes. Click here to watch streaming video on Sunday mornings at…

Service: “Love, Power, and Fear” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons

May 13 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

We honor Mother’s Day with our traditional UU flower celebration, and reflections on the perception of powerful women in the history of our culture.  Mother love can be a subversive force, challenging the suffering of the status quo, but a culture’s capacity to tolerate the exercise of power by women is never a given.  The image of the witch reflects and informs this ambiguity, even in our own day. Be sure to bring a flower, from the garden or the…

Service: “Changing Church” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons

May 20 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Religious communities are often eager to change the world, to make it better for future generations, and more reflective of either the will of the gods that created it, or the good that is possible in human nature.   Yet when the church itself is asked to change its customs or ideas, it rarely does so without conflict and struggle. How does our congregation encounter change, and what changes might be asked of us as the generations shift?  The choir will…
