Worship Topics for February 2018

February 4     More Than We Once Thought: Being a Welcoming Congregation Today
Reverend Christine Riley, Music Director Raymond Elliott, and the UUCCWC Choir

During this time, when national and global leaders seek to spawn divisiveness, Unitarian Universalists are called to stand in witness for our shared liberal religious values and faith. Ours is a faith which welcomes all who come with open minds and compassionate hearts. Ours is a faith which must be newly energized so that we step forward and speak for those whose rights are marginalized in society. Being a Welcoming Congregation today asks far more of our congregation and of us individually than ever before. How can we best respond?

With joyous music and inspirational words, today’s worship offers each of us deeper understanding and enriches our fellowship.

 

February 11     Beginning Again and Again
Reverend Barbara Stevens

In January, we often commit to change. As the time goes on, we tend to waver in that commitment, because change is hard. Using the biblical tale of Jonah and the fish, we consider resistance, openness, and the power of acceptance and support in moving toward wholeness.

 

February 18     “SOURCES OF OUR FAITH” SERIES: Our 4TH UU Source
“Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to
God’s Love by loving our neighbor as ourselves.”
Reverend Christine Riley, Music Director Raymond Elliott, and the UUCCWC Choir

Our Unitarian heritage and our Universalist heritage both are rooted in Christianity, which has deep connections in Judaism. Here, in our congregation, our fellowship and shared spiritual journey are enriched with the presence of a wide spectrum of theological beliefs. For some of us, past affiliations with Christianity or Judaism were simply not satisfactory; for others, they resulted in painful partings. This morning, we are challenged to truly keep our minds open as we explore together what from our UU Christian and Jewish roots can be relevant for us in our troubled times.

 

February 25     Chillin’ with the Villains
Reverend Dr. Emily Brault

UU minister and prison chaplain Emily Brault reflects on what it means to faithfully Answer the Call of Love: “Working in prison has changed the way I experience the world, for the worse and for the better. I will share some of those changes that challenge me to rethink my assumptions and attitudes every day.”
