Writer Mahathi Anand said, “Explore the unknown, with a backpack full of desire, intention, and curiosity.” What’s in your backpack? Have you ever gone back to a backpack or bag after a while and found cool things or reminders of memories? Celebrate the kickoff of this year’s Faith Engagement Program with a multigenerational worship including a ritual blessing of backpacks, briefcases, and bags. Bring your own bag!
Speaker: Paula Gribble
Our lives are a rollercoaster. Some of us are in the seat at the front with our hands raised, squealing with great joy. Some are in the back seat, letting the rest of the cars pull them along. And some are in the middle, trying not to feel too overwhelmed by the movement. All seats are valid places to be at different times. Come join the ride as Paula Gribble explores these ups and downs, and how the power of commitment, safety, and surrender all play a significant role in our lives.
We give and receive nurturance throughout our lives, within families and our wider circle of beloveds, in everything we do. How do we nurture ourselves in hard times …..
The UUCCH staff members share the words they each chose for 2021 — a word that represents their goals and wishes, for themselves and for the world. May our words inspire you in your own journey toward hope, progress, reach and ease.
We celebrate the miracle of birth, lighting the dark with our virtual Christmas Eve service for all ages. Gather on Zoom to enjoy the special pageant with our children and youth, along with readings, stories and music to brighten the season with love. Have a candle handy as we join across virtual space to share the light.
We celebrate the light of our chalice, and all the traditions that light our way. Join us for Festivals of Light, a wonderful multigenerational service centered around all the Winter Holidays (Christmas, Solstice, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and more). We will explore each of these traditions matter to us as Unitarian Universalists, hear from voices of all ages, and enjoy wonderful music!
There is no final frontier! We keep growing and learning as long as we choose to engage. Join us as we lift off our Lifespan Faith Engagement Program for the year. In community, we boldly go where some have gone before, though what we learn and how we learn may be the new frontier. In the words of Captain Picard, “ENGAGE!”
