Welcome back to a brand new church year!  The sermon topic for this Sunday is “The All of It”.

(Bring water if you feel so moved; if not, we will bless plenty of extra here at the church.)  
Can Unitarian Universalism, and this humble ritual of homecoming, go wide enough to welcome all, and at the same time deep enough to matter?  Spoiler alert: YES.  Join us. Think with us.  Rejoice with us. Cry with us.  Welcome home.

And so it begins! Sunday, 8/28, 10:30 a.m.

This Sunday, August 28th, our new minister Rev. Jordinn Nelson Long will lead us in an all-ages worship service in the parish hall. The service will begin at 10:30 a.m, and is entitled “Weaving the Web.”
 
Rev. Jordinn will introduce us to our September worship theme of Covenant, as we create a ribbon weaving in celebration of the diversity and beauty of this gathered community.
 
Welcome back; please bring a length of ribbon for each member of your family (and we’ll have plenty extras here at the church if you forget).
 
Join us afterward for the Blessing of the Backpacks on the church lawn (12:00 p.m.).

As we remember those we have loved, we will look at some practical and spiritual ways of being present with others that are healing, nurturing, and potentially transforming. Discover what is both natural and surprising about this process, including how it affects your life as well.

 Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.” (Malcolm Forbes).  Are you a self-confident person?  Are you limited by a low self-esteem?  This sermon will look at what Unitarian Universalism teaches us about self-confidence and its relationship to spirituality.

We sit in spaces made beautiful by human hands, and made holy by our own beliefs and dreams. As we contemplate a new beginning, together, how shall we hold our history and this living, breathing moment?   This service marks the end of candidating week with Jordinn Nelson Long; a special congregational vote to call will immediately follow the service.
