Covenant: The Practice of Relationship

Join us on Zoom here.

A covenant is the agreement we create for how we will be together, and the promise we make to abide by that agreement. Being human, we know that we will break our promise, and so we call ourselves and each other back into covenant, again and again, deepening our relationship and learning ever more deeply to live in harmony.

Creating Sanctuary

Join us on Zoom here.

Welcoming theological diversity in a faith community is a lofty goal, and one that is often difficult to attain. Members of the UUCCH Sanctuary group share their learning and experience over their 30-year history of creating an open space for all understandings of ultimate truth, honoring the free and responsible search for truth and meaning that is at the heart of the Unitarian Universalist faith.

Say the Word: Reparations!

Click here to join us on Zoom.

The legacy of slavery has left a stain on the soul of this nation, and devastated generations of African Americans. Why are reparations for slavery crucial to the restoration of justice, and why is the idea so challenging to the dominant white culture in America? Members of the UUCCH Reparations Task Force share their insights and their commitments to this cause, and to the work to create a New Jersey initiative for reparations for slavery.

Up to My Ears in Cats

Sometimes we make a spontaneous commitment, having no idea how it will turn out – but suddenly we are in the middle of something new, exciting, maybe a bit scary. Journey back with me with the summer of 2016, to explore: What do we do when we realize we are in over our heads, and reversing course is not really an option?

Daylight

The summer solstice is a time to reflect on how we mark the passage of time, the fleeting days and hours, and the mearning of daylight in our lives.

Committed and Connected: Creating Bridges – Lifespan Faith Engagement (LFE) Sunday

This past year has been a challenging one for all ages. Let’s let some joy in the room! Please join our Children’s Faith Engagement program, 3 graduating High School Senior Youth, and LFE program for an exploration and celebration of how staying committed and connected has helped us all survive. We will have participation from all ages, as well as have a special recognition of our bridging senior youth.

Rights and Responsibilities In a Changing World

Questions abound: How do we live in a democratic system, welcoming the perspectives and voices of the minority while honoring the will of the majority? How may our decision-making accommodate the evolving understandings of the social and physical sciences while acknowledging the power of culture and belief in shaping the will of the people? How do we create a welcoming environment for those of diverse identities and needs who are not yet present among us? We live in a changing world, and our systems must evolve to honor our principles and value our life in community.

Remembering

On this weekend of Memorial Day, dedicated to remembering the lives of those who have died in military service, we remind ourselves that the act of remembering is, in itself, a sacred act that weaves the larger ongoing pattern of life.
