This Week’s Services IN PERSON and LIVE FEED

Sunday August 7, 2022 at 10:30 AM:

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Guest Minister: Rev. Beth Marshall

Coordinator: Andi Kramer

Fr. Gregory Boyle writes that “Judgement takes up all the room you need for loving.” This morning’s service explores how we might challenge ourselves to see beyond that which we don’t understand, to the tenderness
of the human being within.

Also, there will be a talk by Anthony Wilgus held at

9:00 AM prior to Sunday Service in the Sanctuary

Sunday, August 7: “Beyond Diagnosis”

Smoking causes cancer. Mental illness causes violence. My former spouse destroyed our marriage. The human brain is quite adept at cause and effect thinking. Quick, efficient and often inaccurate, this way of viewing the world yields simple answers to highly complex issues. This discussion will explore the challenges of not only developing a broader perspective on the human condition but also the wisdom of embracing ignorance. Discarding some of our cherished notions about problems in families, congregations, and society may lead to a more thoughtful way to engage those whom we ‘diagnose’ on a regular basis, viz., those who do not think and believe like we do, at least at first blush.

Who We Are

  • We are compassionate thinkers and doers.
  • We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality, but aligned in our desire to make a difference for the good.
  • We think for ourselves and recognize that life experience influences our beliefs more than anything.
  • We need not think alike to love alike.
  • We are people of many beliefs (link opens in new window) and backgrounds.

Current Building Access & ZOOM

  • We are currently holding all services in-person in our Sanctuary, but also are live streaming the service.  Sermons are taped and available under the Worship tab.

    UUCGT’s Board of Trustees unanimously approved at last night’s Board Meeting a return to optional masking with Sunday Services. People are welcomed to wear masks at their discretion. Additionally, we will provide hospitality and coffee once again for a time of fellowship following our services.
