January 2017 Services
January 1 Poetry Sunday– Reverend Fayre Stephenson
On this New Year’s Day Sunday we invite everyone to bring a favorite poem or two to share. However, this is not a requirement! Listeners are welcome, too! Join us as we ring in the New Year through beloved poems.
January 8 When Hope Is Hard to Find– Reverend Fayre Stephenson
Difficult national and international events continue to leave many seeking sources of hope. At this service we will explore the history and hope the Hanukkah story offers in today’s dark times.
January 15 Remembering Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.– Reverend Fayre Stephenson
To celebrate the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, we will remember and honor the great Civil Rights leader through his own inspiring words and by singing the freedom songs of the Civil Rights Movement. Join us for this service of readings and spirited music.
January 22 May Peace Prevail: Exploring Multi-Faith Contemplative Worship– Reverend Bernice Martin
Unitarian Universalists draw on the wisdom of the world’s faith traditions. Contemplative practices are part of the spiritual journey within these faith traditions as a way of attuning ourselves with the sacred. As Unitarian Universalists our spiritual practices are as individual as each of us. We too find balance in our lives as we listen more deeply to the “still small voice within.” Please join us this morning as we explore “PEACE” within a multi-faith contemplative worship experience.
January 29 We Should all Be Feminists– Reverend Fayre Stephenson
Using Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s book We Should All Be Feminists as our guide, this service will be a consideration of how universal feminism can lead us to a happier and fairer world for everyone, both men and women.
