"Though We've Broken our Vows a Thousand Times"

This month we are exploring the theme of commitment. Agreements, treaties, covenants, contracts...there are many ways to make promises to one another. And when those promises are broken what do we do?

"Civic Virtue: How to Love a Country"

Our fifth principle calls us to take responsibility for democracy--in the congregation, in the nation, in the world.  Democracy is the only form of governance that respects the inherent worth and dignity of every person and calls for acceptance of one another.  Our covenant calls us to dwell together in peace. So how exactly do we as a religious community help and support one another in fulfilling our civic duty? It's all in the be-attitudes: love, hope, trust , and grace.

Worship Leader: Holley Ulbrich

Worship Associate: Janie Shipley

"Beloved Community: A Way of Being"

Beloved community is not a goal, it is a way of being.  It is an attitude, an orientation of the heart.   Beloved community is a daily practice, a spiritual politics, that requires inclusivity, nonviolence, and the hard discipline of radical hospitality. What future for UUFC do you hope for as this community prepares to welcome a new settled minister?

"The Gift of Being Let Down"

Side With Love Sunday

In 2021, the annual 30 Days of Love celebration centers 4 themes from a Widening the Circle of Concern, a report from the Commission on Institutional Change, a UUA Board-commissioned group charged with researching, reporting, and making recommendations for transforming white supremacy and other oppressions in the institutional history and practices of the UUA and its 1,000+ congregations and covenanted communities. This Side With Love Sunday worship service lifts up those themes: Living our values, Hospitality & inclusion, Educating for Liberation, and Restoration and Reparations. What if to "side with love" meant making bold, faith-full choices? What if it were even a little bit scary? This worship service brings together worship leaders and musicians from across the country to offer hopeful, moving, challenging reminders about what we, as Unitarian Universalists, are called to do, and BE, in the world.

Worship Leader: Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, President, Unitarian Universalist Association

“The Meaning of Home”

For many of us, our relationship with home has intensified this year. The pandemic has given many of us new appreciation for, and concerns about, the places we call home and the centrality of these places in our lives This year during Guest at Your Table, we invite you to witness stories of our partners around the world as they tell you about home. Our partners in Central America are working to make sure no one is forced to flee their home due to violence or economic devastation. Our partners in Alaska, Louisiana, and the Pacific are fighting for their homes and ancestral lands against the ravages of extractive industries and climate change. And our partners in Burma, Bangladesh, and beyond are working tirelessly to support the rights of the Rohingya ethnic minority of Burma after facing government backed genocide in their homeland.
