“Listening is an art that requires attention over talent, spirit over ego, others over self.” – Dean Jackson
This Sunday, John Hall will give a service on the 5th principle titled “Listening to the least heard voices.”
We are forgoing meeting in person during the coronavirus epidemic, meeting instead through the magic of ZOOM. We share music, readings, and hymns on our usual presentation slides, have a story and a talk, and share joys and sorrows, as well as a virtual “coffee hour” discussion starting at 10:30, with the service at 11. If you prefer not to be seen, video is optional. If you would like to participate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details and a link, or for help with using ZOOM.
Please Join us for Worship.
If you are a regular attendee, we have added you to our Google Group if we had an email address. If you have not gotten a group email already, please email email@example.com so that we can add you to the group, which we will be using for staying in touch with each other during this time. Public announcements will continue to be posted here on the website and on our Facebook page and Twitter account, as usual.

Our services are Sundays at 11 a.m. at the Progressive Women’s Association 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.
This Sunday, John Hall will talk about the history of Voting Rights and the Unitarian Universalist Association.
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.
We would love to have you come worship with us.

For each day of Chalica we will offer activities, some are fun and some are more reflecting, a chalice lighting, and a meditation. Gather everyone together, light the chalice, and breathe into the principles with us each day.
- Listen to a friend who needs to talk without offering advice.
- Write a letter to someone in the legislature.
- Find out how to get on the board at your church.
- Find out when your City Council meets and plan to go to the next meeting.
- Host a family meal and everyone gets to vote on what you will make.
- Write a journal entry about what the democratic process means to you.
- Watch a movie as a family, but everyone has to vote on what it’s going to be.
Chalice Lighting: (If you don’t have a chalice at home, remember that the point of a chalice is that it is a symbol so any candle will work.)
This fire is a reminder of the light within us all;
the yearning for freedom,
the longing for truth,
the flame of intuition,
the torch of conscience.
We dedicate this service to the remembrance of this Holy Light.
There are two meditations. The second one is even fun for kids.
Give Voice to Mourning by Lindasusan Ulrich
The Great Pie-Rat Controversy by Naomi King
Here is a musical meditation as well. This is Dion’s “Abraham, Martin, and John” because it focuses on people who lived this principle.
PS: Very sorry this is a day late.
