OUR UU CONGREGATION

During the month of September, our service theme is “OUR UU CONGREGATION.”

Our services will reflect that overall theme, and we would like the settings to do the same.  There will be a “continual setting” during the month, which is best described as a setting that we add to each Sunday.  Because our theme is “Our UU Congregation,” we are asking congregants to participate in the settings by bringing something that has significance to you, reflects you, or somehow represents you, and adding those items to the settings.  Please be prepared to participate in creating the setting on Sunday, September 3rd and 10th during the service.  Congregants are also welcome to bring items and place them on the setting either prior to service or afterwards.  The final setting should be overflowing with items that, taken as a whole, serve to reflect our congregation.

 

Sunday, September 3  -  Rev. Karen Mars

10:30 AM Service:  “It's All About Us”

No matter what brought us to UUCGT or what our background is, no matter how alike or diverse we find ourselves, it is the spirit of Congregation and how we feel about each other that keeps us here.  This will be a time to think about what is most important to us in our lives.

LISTENING 

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear,

an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring,

all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

  - Leo Buscaglia

 

This month we explore listening as a form of communication
