There’s an old line that religion isn’t just fire insurance — that is, it’s more than just a way to avoid eternal flames in hell. A deep, healthy spiritual foundation can help us be ready for things we could never have seen coming, good and bad. Our community aims to teach skills, foster resilience, and create relationships that strengthen us all.
Speaker: Rev. Christian Schmidt
The famous labor slogan calling for a fair workday should still ring in our ears today: Eight hours for work, eight hours for sleep, eight hours for what we will. We will explore what we are called to do in those precious moments: relax, spend time with our loved ones, change the world, all of the above?
Join us as we explore the grace, beauty, competition, and triumph of the athletic endeavor. Whether you love sports or hate them, whether you were first-team All-American or never wanted to leave the bleachers, there’s something we can all learn and appreciate.
The journey of life brings us seasons of both joy and sorrow. Join us this Sunday as we give thanks for this faith community of partners on life’s journey.
Join us for Community Ministry Sunday, led by UUCB’s four Affiliated Community Ministers, the Revs. Cat Cox, Theresa Hardy, Sue Magidson, and Jane Ramsey, with Lynne Cahoon, Ariel Smith-Iyer, and Rev. Christian Schmidt
The year 2020 is 345 days from now. I remember well the turning over of the numbers as 1999 became 2000, the sense of anticipation. A year from now, what will we be doing, what is possible, who do we want to be?
In this contemplative service of lessons and carols, our gifted choir will help us weave together sacred narration, modern poetry, prayer, traditional carols, special music, and candlelight for a refreshing take on what the Christmas story means for us today. All are invited to stay and enjoy the candlelight after the service has ended.
In this season of lights, of darkness, of mystery and joy, there is also the theme of waiting. Whether you’re a child waiting for presents, a soon-to-be parent awaiting a birth or adoption, we share the experience of expectation.
Join us as we explore our world through the lens of mystery novels. Is life a mystery to solve, are we called to be great detectives, and if so, then who dun it?
Our congregation spent months discovering where we’re being called to go together in our next chapter. In this service we’ll explore what to do with our vision.
