Honoring the Earth and the Interdependent Web

Sunday, June 4  –  Rabbi Chava Bahle
10:30 AM Service:  “What Will You Bring to the Feast?  A Water Communion” – Based on a Service by Rev. Erika Hewitt
Join us for a joyous, creative (and brief) worship service prior to the Annual Meeting!

How does our garden grow, this community of love?
We each plant seeds that blossom forth, and harvest the fruits thereof.
How does our garden grow?  With stewardship and care:
Our hearts and spirits take their strength from our gifts freely shared.

Sunday, June 11  –  Lay-led Service with Betsy Emdin
10:30 AM Service:  “Poetry of the Earth:  A Service in Song and Word”
Through poetry, story and song we celebrate the coming of Summer.  We will honor the beloved tradition of the Flower Communion.  Please bring a flower to share at the service and we will each have an opportunity to choose a different one that speaks to us to take home.

Sunday, June 18  –  Rabbi Chava Bahle and Margaret Wozniak
10:30 AM Service:  “Grandfather Sky”
Today is First Nations Day in Canada, and also Father’s Day.  Let’s gather and honor the spirit of our Native neighbors and fathers.

The Great Spirit is in all things, he is in the air we breathe.
The Great Spirit is our Father, but the Earth is our Mother.
She nourishes us, that which we put into the ground she returns to us.
– Big Thunder (Bedagi) – Wabanaki Algonquin

Sunday, June 25  –  Rabbi Chava Bahle, Hal Gurian and Kathy Booker-Graham
10:30 AM Service:  “The Loving Heart”
How do we cultivate an open, loving heart?  It is risky to live vulnerably, but as UUs we are encouraged to live boldly,  bravely:  this means the risk of an open heart.  In the well known words of Jay Abernathy Jr.:

We affirm that love is our greatest purpose.
Accepting one another is the truest form of faithful living.
The search for truth is our constant star.
We pledge our hearts, minds, and hands:
To challenge injustice with courage;
To find hope in times of fear;
And to live out our Unitarian Universalist values every day as a beloved community.
Thus do we covenant with each other and with all that is sacred in life.

 

JULY
Sunday Services
Whatever Floats Your Boat

Sunday, July 2  –  Celebrating 4th of July Holiday  –  No Sunday Service

Sunday, July 9  –  Lay-led Service with Karen Mars
10:30 AM Service:  “The Should’a, Would’a, Ought’as of our Lives”
Wayne Dyer says, “Our lives are a sum total of the choices we have made.”  Are our lives so filled with doing those things that we are sure we MUST do that we can find no time for the small joys that can truly color our lives beautiful such as a walk on the beach, a concert in the park, the creation of something of beauty, a gathering of friends?
How can we decide what is really important for the days, weeks, or years we have left in our lives?
