What do UU’s believe? Why do we have “principles” and not a creed? How do we bring those principles to life as we put our actions where our hearts are?
UUCM’s summer services will focus on our seven Unitarian Universalist Principles using prose and poetry, prayer and song, art and story. We’ll see that our Principles are woven from threads of hearts and minds, compassion and action, courage and responsibility – yours, mine and ours.
Come, explore this inspiring rainbow of values all summer long.
July 7 – Harry Potter and the Seven Principles – with Lindsay Dunckel, Rev. Kevin, and a very special guest
Summer begins! Our youngest members kick off their summer-long exploration of UU values through the lens of Harry Potter and Hogwarts, and all of us, Wizards and Muggles alike, launch our summer service series exploring the Seven Unitarian Universalist Principles. With magic involved, no telling what could happen!
July 14 – First Thing First? Rev. Kevin Tarsa with Worship Associate, Wendy Wernigg
Our UUA congregations covenant to affirm and promote “the inherent worth and dignity of every person.” As the first of our Unitarian Universalist principles, it is foundational, and, if taken to heart, an invitation to lifelong awareness and growth. That said, it is not the be-all and end-all.
July 21 – What Time Is It? – Allison Rivers Samson Worship Associate: Holly Rice
The acceleration of climate change is finally being talked about in the mainstream media, but is it too late to shift the tide? What can we do about this issue that’s in our hearts and on our minds? What is our responsibility to the children of our world and how does that connect with our UUA Seventh Principle?
July 28 – Really? Who is Welcome Here? – Scottie Hart Worship Associate: Gail Johnson Vaughan
UUCM member Scottie Hart shines light on someone most of us already know – “ThatOne.” Scottie’s sermon was given birth in this Spring’s Shared Pulpit Class. Come learn who “ThatOne” is, and the wisdom “ThatOne” can bring into our lives – when and if we are ready. This service is inspired by our UU 2nd Principle – Justice, Equity and Compassion in Human Relations.
