Flower Communion and Egg Hunt: Sunday March 27, 2016

Prelude Mother Spirit Father Spirit
Norbert Čapek, sung by Waco UUC

Welcome

Today we are celebrating our Flower Communion, which was created by Dr. Norbert Čapek for the Liberal Religious Fellowship he founded in Prague, then Czechoslavakia, in 1925, and which became the largest Unitarian Church in the world. He sought a ceremony that would celebrate love and community and the interdependent web of life and love among a new and diverse congregation drawn from many backgrounds, and which would be a celebration not tied to any older religious ceremonies, which many of his congregation had rejected. Nearly a hundred years later, it is celebrated by Unitarian Universalist congregations everywhere. Continue reading

Regrets for Sunday 19 July 2015

Often things do not go as planned. Sunday July 19, 2015 is one of those times. We will not be able to have a service on this Sunday.   We are sorry if you were counting on this service or planning to visit.  We will be at Audra on the August 2nd. We will be back at the PWA event Center on the 16th. There will be more services to look forward to in the future.

Until then remember …

About the Artist

“With a voice reminiscent of Don McLean, McKnight traverses from old-time Appalachian tunes to contemporary folk and blues, all backed up by his dead-on guitar playing” – The Boston Globe

“The skillful songwriter’s interest in history is revealed in songs such as the Civil War ballad ‘The Road to Appomattox’ … He also works in true folkie tradition, updating lyrics to classic material such as ‘Worried Man Blues’ or reworking Robert Johnson’s ‘Crossroads’.” – The Washington Post

The nationally acclaimed Americana artist’s solo performances are like one man theatre; the songs are woven together with humorous stories and poetic drama, and the musical soundscape traverses influences from Appalachia, tasteful slide and jazzy blues, feisty anthems, rustic folk, and even a little fancy flatpicking on a Carter Family tune.

Sunday 21 December 2014: Season of Light

For millennia, in the depths of the darkness of winter, people have celebrated the return of the light. This year, the news is full of darkness – many wrongs against our first principle, the worth and dignity of every person. Many of us are tempted to despair.

Bring a candle, your hopes and fears, and one step you can take to right a wrong, to share or to contemplate silently, and we will celebrate hope and the inevitable return of the light.
