“No matter what message you are about to deliver somewhere, whether it is holding out a hand of friendship, or making clear that you disapprove of something, is the fact that the person sitting across the table is a human being, so the goal is to always establish common ground.” – Madeleine Albright
Our services are Sundays at 11 a.m.  at the Progressive Women’s Association Uptown Event Center, 305 Washington Ave. in downtown Clarksburg, behind the Courthouse. There are classes for children and adults 10 to 10:45 am, and a coffee gathering before the service. More about us.

Andrew McKnight will be joining us this Sunday for a special music service. He will be doing a service called “Tilling Our Common Ground”. Here’s what he has to say about it, “These are indeed challenging times in these highly polarized United States. With all of the anger hurled across the ideological divide and the lack of reasoned discourse in the mainstream media, is there any room in our humanist worldview for love of country and the patriotic ideals we learned in grade school? Listening to those with different or opposing viewpoints is becoming a lost art. And yet at the core, those who label themselves conservatives or liberals want many of the same things – to be safe in our homes and communities, to pursue our happiness, and to have clean air and water, and good schools and jobs. This musical presentation will help till, fertilize, plant and nurture our common ground.” We will be singing favorites like “Blue Boat Home” and “We Shall Overcome” as well as listening to original music from Andrew. 

We would love to have you come worship with us.

Classes and worship are replaced by Spiritual Outings on the first Sunday of each month during the summer, with brief worship, a potluck picnic, and outdoor activities. The schedule is in the sidebar.

Children are welcome.  There is childcare and an activity for young children during the service.

The building is wheelchair accessible, with an accessible restroom.

Sunday, August 13, 2017: Weeding and Not Weeding

Self-Heal

Self-Heal

The summer routines of yard maintenance bring us into direct contact with nature, with the living things that inhabit the space around us. Some can bring us great joy, others perhaps less so. And so we must decide when to weed, and when not to weed. These decisions we make are part of our spiritual journey.

Peace, joy, and love,
Robert
