Remembrance

As we begin Transgender Remembrance Week, we highlight the losses we face due to anti-transgender bigotry and violence. With so many seeking to erase transgender people — sometimes in the most brutal ways possible — it is vitally important that those we lose are remembered, and that we join with community partners like the Kaleidoscope program as allies in the struggle for justice.

The Source of Life

is the source of life, and in our annual ritual of Water Communion we return from our journeys in a world united by water. Those attending in person are invited to bring water from wherever your summer wanderings took you, and those participating from home are invited to prepare a tiny water ceremony at home, as we celebrate the flow of love that uplifts and encourages our lives.

Memories in a Wall

The UU Church in Cherry Hill celebrates the month of May as the anniversary of its founding, and so today we celebrate 66 years of history, exploring the contents of the time capsule that was placed in the Sanctuary walls in the year 2000, and placing a new time capsule to celebrate the Sanctuary renovation, affirming our hopes for the future of this beloved community.

Creating Community (and Flower Communion)

May is our time of Flower Communion, as we celebrate the beauty of diversity in community; Mother’s Day as we celebrate the power of nurturing love; and a time to consider how we dwell together in peace, living into the values of community, trust, love and learning in this beloved congregation. Bring a flower to share, bring your open heart to connect in love.

Labyrinth

The labyrinth is an ancient structure, created to support meditation and spiritual renewal in a gentle movement practice. We will share stories from labyrinth participants in this sacred space on UUCCH grounds, built on the site where the original Fellowship Hall of the church stood until it burned in the 1990s. All are invited to stay after the service to experience the labyrinth themselves, and to plan to attend our event on World Labyrinth Day at 12:30 pm the following Saturday.
