April 3 – International Transgender Day of Visibility – Bo Azora-Minda & the Interweaves

 

A celebration of the lives of transgender and gender non-conforming people worldwide.

 

April 10Grace Happens – Rev. John

 

What does grace mean for Unitarian Universalists? In the context of Christian theology, grace is the free and unmerited act through which people are brought closer to God. This means that grace has to do with connection to the divine, whatever this means for us.

 

April 17I Never Asked to Be Born – Rodney Fagan, Lay Leader

 

When I was a younger boy, my cry of anguish was "I never asked to be born". Now that I am a bit older I feel and know that my soul cried before the Supreme in Heaven to let me be reborn.

 

 

April 24 –   Let My People Go - Rev. John

 

We will gather this Sunday in Fellowship Hall to celebrate Passover. We will read from the Haggadah, the order of service for the Passover Seder. This service celebrates the Jew’s liberation from slavery in Egypt.

There are seven principles which Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote:

  • rainbow_chalice.jpgThe inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

Unitarian Universalism (UU) draws from many sources:

  • Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life;
  • Words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love;
  • Wisdom from the world's religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;
  • Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;
  • Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit.
  • Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.

These principles and sources of faith are the backbone of our religious community.
