Please bring a flower of your choice to church and place it in one of the large vases at the front of the sanctuary before worship begins. Don’t worry – if you forget to bring a flower we will have plenty of extra so that everyone can participate in this much-beloved Unitarian tradition. This is a service for all ages.
Speaker: Intern Minister Amanda Weatherspoon
Stability is often a marker of safety, sucess, and happiness. What does this mean for the times in our lives that are not so stable? How can we face and embrace imbalance – in our lives, communities, and the wider global village? How can we lean into our source and faith communities when everything seems off kilter?
Henry Ward Beecher once said “The difference between perseverence and obstinancy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t.” Join us this week as we consider what makes for a healthy approach to the harder parts of life.
Often, darkness is equated with despair, what is unwanted, what we want to rid ourselves of. But how is darkness transformed when we approach it from a place of respect, hope, and love? What lessons can we learn from our shadow side? How can we sit in and with our shadow?
Last year the Youth-Adult team focused on the promise that we make to each other and the promise we make between generations within our community. Join us as we explore the promise of covenant with UUCB’s Youth Adult Team. Middle and high schoolers are invited to remain in the service while children in elementary school will have their regular classes. Come explore this vital aspect of community and service!
