2 Services in the Sanctuary at 9am and 11am

2 Services in the Sanctuary at 9am and 11am

Rev. Dr. Cynthia L. Landrum

The Jewish High Holy Day of Yom Kippur is celebrated this week, so we'll take a look at the holiday, at the meaning of atonement, and how we begin again afterwards. This service will also celebrate our Coming of Age class for the year!

In a world of zero tolerance and punitive solutions, restorative justice calls us to love and to learn. It’s time to change the narrative. What does it would it take to be open and accountable to one another?

Our guest minister, Rev. Paul Langston-Daly was ordained as a Unitarian Universalist minister in 1997. In addition to his M. Div. from Andover-Newton Theological School, Rev. Paul holds a Masters Degree in Restorative Practices and Youth Counseling from the International Institute for Restorative Practices. Rev. Paul brings 30 years of experience in conflict management in his current work to help congregations and communities to overcome conflict, and to facilitate a more open, creative and supportive environment.

Sunday, September 22nd, 2019

Youth Activist Greta Thunberg says of the response needed to climate change, “Act as if the house was on fire. Because t is.” In the midst of the Global Climate Strike, this service will address our seventh principle of respect for the interdependent web of all life, our hopes and fears, and how respond as a faith to the devastation of our earth. Rev. Dr. Cynthia L. Landrum will lead the service.

Sunday, September 15th, 2019

The modernist poets talked of fragments in a world that seemed to be falling apart. Our age mirrors that one, but using a mirror and the power of expectation we can make kaleidoscopic beauty out of fragments. On this Sunday we will also have a recognition of our fall religious education teachers. Rev. Dr. Cynthia L. Landrum will lead the service.

9AM & 11AM in the Sanctuary

We will gather the waters of peace, love, sorrow, and joy as we gather together as a beloved community to start our church year. Students and teachers of all ages are also invited to bring a backpack or other item to be blessed as they begin their academic year. Rev. Dr. Cynthia L. Landrum will lead the service.

Sunday, May 19th, 2019

Religion has often played a key role in influencing our relationship to the earth: from having “dominion,” to being caretakers, or even partners. What images do we hold? What responsibilities do we have? This service will explore our competing stories about the earth… and the hopes and fears we share going forward.
The Service will be led by members of the FPC Climate Change Task Force.

Sunday, May 12th, 2019

Rev. Dr. Cynthia L. Landrum will be preaching.
Mother's Day is a holiday our culture pays a lot more attention to than Father's Day. The same is often true in our churches, with Father's Day falling during our summer service time. So today we'll talk about and honor parents of all genders, as well as those who are not parents but otherwise mentor and nurture children and youth.
