1-16-22 Worship Service

Hello UUCCWC Members, Friends and Visitors!

Please join us this Sunday, January 16, 2022 at 10 am for our online Sunday Service!  Afterwards we will meet for Church Coffee Hour.  Here is the link for the service:  https://zoom.us/j/4312377276The Zoom Team highly recommends updating your Zoom client app.  Instructions can be found here.


The Limits of Reason

Rev. Ben Robins

The ability to reason has given us such wonderful gifts as calculus, mRNA vaccines, and smart phones that allow us to stay in touch with loved ones hundreds and thousands of miles away. But reason has also given us such treacheries as calculus, bio weapons, and smart phones that beckon us like candy. We respect reason, not because it always leads to good things, but because it is a powerful tool for understanding and working in the world.

This Sunday, we get a better handle on reason. Why is it so often hard to reason well, as individuals and as groups? How far can reason take us? What other tools are at hand, if we open our eyes to see?


Should UUCCWC have an unexpected interruption or intrusion to our service, the service will immediately shut down. Please log back in after a couple of minutes for the continuation of our service.

For those unfamiliar with Zoom, joining is easy –

  • Just click the Zoom link on your favorite device with Video (a laptop or desktop monitor works best) –
    • If you’ve never used Zoom before, you’ll be guided to quickly install the Zoom app, before joining the service
  • Once in the Service meeting, select Computer audio and start your Video
  • Note:  important controls (location may change per your device)
    • Bottom task bar (hover your mouse at the bottom to see) – Start your Video on the left
    • Top (also hover your mouse) – Select your screen mode: default is usually “Speaker” (recommended) or select “Gallery”
  • See the UUCCWC Guide to using Zoom!  This can be found on the website.
  • If you want to test your device in advance – use this link on your selected device: zoom.us/test

Your best screen mode is “Speaker”, this way, whoever is speaking during the service will be shown.

When you join the Service, you will be muted (and cannot unmute) – this is to control accidental interruptions.

Coffee Hour

Please stay with us for the Church Social Hour! At the end of the service, you will see a small invitation at the bottom of your Zoom window to pick your breakout room. If you are on a phone or tablet, you may have to tap your screen to see the breakout rooms option. We will have a newcomers’ room and other open chat rooms. If you would like to further discuss the service, stay in the main room. And you can use the controls at the bottom of the screen to move between breakout rooms if you want to visit with multiple groups.

Please join as you are able for coffee and refreshments from the luxury of your home. Connect, catch up, most of all have fun! Hope to see you there.
