THANKSGIVING SERVICE~INTERGENERATIONAL

Rev. Dr. Cynthia L. Landrum

At our intergenerational Thanksgiving service we will break bread together and celebrate the season of harvest. We will also distribute UUSC Guest at Your Table boxes and talk about what it means to be a “welcome table.” The bread we share is baked by FPC youth, who will also participate in the service. At the end of each service we will invite people to gather outside to place our transgender pride flags on our lawn in recognition of the upcoming Transgender Day of Remembrance.

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS~SET CLOCKS BACK ONE HOUR

We call ours a “democratic faith.” Why is democracy a religious value? Where is the line between religion and politics? How do we live our faith and keep separation between church and state? In the tradition of the “election sermon,” our minister will share her thoughts. The Rev. Dr. Cynthia L. Landrum will be preaching.

The Rev. Tom Rosiello and The Rev. Dr. Cynthia Landrum

All Souls Day is a day we remember all of those who have gone before us, and especially those we love whom we’ve lost in the last year. For this service you are invited to bring a photo or a memento to place on our altar of remembrance. This year we will also have small stones we invite you to place on the altar, onto which you can write the name of a loved one, or feel free to paint or otherwise decorate a stone to bring and place. After the service, the stones may be taken home or placed in a designated location in our garden.

We’re delighted to welcome back our minister emeritus, The Rev. Tom Rosiello for this service, who will co-officiate the service with our minister, The Rev. Dr. Cynthia Landrum.

At this time of year, it’s easy for many of us to find spirituality in nature with the leaves turning golden and red. This service will explore transcendentalism, spirituality, and the season upon us. The Rev. Dr. Cynthia Landrum will be preaching.

Sunday, October 7th, 2018

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, LBGT History Month (and includes Coming Out Day), and Bullying Prevention Month. It’s a month in which we might be more aware that we need places of sanctuary in our life. Using the metaphor of the umbrella (hint: bring your umbrella to worship), we’ll explore how we are a living sanctuary for ourselves and each other.

Banned Books Week Sunday

Unitarianism and Universalism are both Christian heresies. Today, we continue to be a church that welcomes both faith and doubt, where we say “to question truly is an answer.” Rev. Cindy will explore her faith and doubts and invite you to share yours. Cynthia Landrum will lead the service.
