Sunday, December 30, 2018: When the World Outlawed War

Swords to Plowshares

And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

— Micah 4:3

For generations the peoples of the world have called for an end to war, and yet war continues unabated, dragging destruction and suffering in its train. This Sunday Robert Helfer will reflect on the war-related anniversaries of the year just ending and approach the questions: What can be done? What are we doing?

We would love to have you come worship with us.

Hope is not pretending that troubles don’t exist. It is the trust that they will not last forever, that hurts will be healed and difficulties overcome. It is faith that a source of strength and renewal lies within to lead us through the dark into the sunshine.” – Elizabeth Chase

Sunday, October 22, 2017: Words of Comfort

Prelude: Somebody Else’s Troubles – Steve Goodman

Welcome: To learn more about being human – Erika A. Hewitt

Welcome to this morning, this day, and this opportunity to be together in community — which is a time of joy, comfort, and sometimes challenges. This Unitarian Universalist congregation is a place where we come to learn more about being human. We’re not here because we’ve figured out life’s questions, or because we think we’ve got it right, or even because we think we know what the questions are.

We come here to learn more about being in relationship together: how to listen, how to forgive, how to be vulnerable, and how to create trust and compassion in one another.

Let us move into worship, willing to be authentic with each other, honest within ourselves, and opening to connection in all its forms.

Come, let us worship together.
