 Sunday, September 3rd

LAST 10:00 a.m. Service, "Consilience: Science and Mystery", Dylan Voorhees

Explore how a scientific view of the universe and nature does not conflict with, but indeed can deepen our spiritual appreciation of the world and life around us. Science is *about* having a sense of wonder, and we can use this become more compassionate too.


 Sunday, September 10th

9:15 and 11:00 a.m. Services, "Ingathering Sunday", Rev. Carie Johnsen

Celebrating the sacredness of life: In-gathering Sunday brings a re-commitment of spirit to our beloved covenantal community. As our summer activities come to an end, we pause to bring forth life itself: water. 

Ingathering Sunday is a long-standing Unitarian Universalism tradition wherein members and friends bring a small vial of water from the places of their lives. The water is gathered in a communal bowl and blessed.  This ritual symbolizes the diversity and unity of our gathered community.


 Sunday, September 17th

9:15 and 11:00 a.m. Services, "Trees and Other Beings", Rev. Carie Johnsen

The First Principle Project asks: What if our first principle was the inherent worth and dignity of every being.  How might the recognition that worth and dignity extend beyond our human boundary change your perspective of yourself, others, and your actions? How could we nourish our spirits and heal our world with this change?


 Sunday, September 24th

9:15 and 11:00 a.m. Services, "Self, Self, Self", Rev. Carie Johnsen

Sometimes it is all about self: self-discovery, self-care, self-worth, self-dignity. Living true to one’s self in a sea of expectations requires a bit of self-centeredness and a whole lot of self-love.
