January 12 – The Unexpected

Donna McCartney, Worship Leader

“The best laid plans of mice and men.” “Life is what happens while you’re making other plans.” What happens when you encounter the unexpected? What do you do when your plans get turned upside down? Can good things come from unexpected events that merely irritate or even cause great despair? Come help us explore this topic as we launch ourselves into 2020. This sermon comes from the 4th week of the January edition of Faith Rocket.

January 19 – Giving Life to Meaning

Rev. Lee Marie Sanchez

Our Living Tradition of Unitarian Universalism draws from many sources. Along with valuing our direct experience of mystery and wonder, words and deeds of prophetic women and men, wisdom from world religions, and Jewish and Christian teachings about God’s love, we also covenant to affirm and promote “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.” How is it we UU’s bring together, and perhaps even reconcile at times, these various sources? As “Humanism” (in its many forms) is the predominant orientation of the majority of Unitarian Universalists today, please join us to explore how that is so beautifully possible!
