Reviving a longtime UUCB ritual, we will celebrate the animal companions and neighbors that bless us with their presence in our lives. Since most animals prefer to be blessed within the comfort and safety of their homes, this ritual seems well suited to online celebration. We will gather on Facebook Live and YouTube. A longtime member of UUCB, Jim Gasperini has served as Worship Associate, Chalice Circle Facilitator, and Webmaster.
Rev. Michelle Collins, the new Interim Minister for UUCB, will be introduced.
Virtual Coffee Hour
Drawing from Robin Wall Kimmerer’s experience as a botanist and member of the Potowatami Nation, this story/sermon will look at the joining of generations and the origin stories we tell about the earth and all its creatures.
As members of a faith community, we inherit the work and dreams of those who came before us. What are we called to do for those who will come behind us?
This week in worship we will lean into the power and blessing in saying goodbye well as we bid farewell to several people. This is our Intern Minister, the Rev. Amanda Weatherspoon’s final Sunday among us, we will send the Jay family forth with our blessings as they prepare to move to the Twin Cities for Kathryn’s ministerial internship, and Lindsay Lam will share about her experience growing in faith as she prepares to go off to college.
Join us this Sunday as we say “thank you” to all of our Family Ministry volunteers and the Rev. Amanda Weatherspoon, preaches her last sermon as our Intern Minister.
