Wandering in the Wilderness

Speaker: 

Rev Helen Carroll

Remember Jethro, father-in-law of Moses? Remember the struggles of the people as they followed Moses through the wilderness after escaping from Egypt? Remember how things fell apart and how long the journey took? Neither the nation nor the congregation are the first people to wander through a wilderness.

Let the Children Come

Date: 

Sunday, February 5, 2017

Time: 

10:30 a.m.

Speaker: 

Rev Helen Carroll

Around the globe and from the earliest days of our history, parents have brought their children to places of worship to share their joy and dedication with those in the wider community. As Unitarian Universalists we believe that every child brings new life and hope into the world and so we celebrate our children in a child dedication ceremony.
 
In today’s service, we’ll explore the commitment made during that ceremony of parent, family, and congregation to the spiritual life of a child. 

LovingKindness

Date: 

Sunday, February 12, 2017

Time: 

10:30 a.m.

Speaker: 

Rev Helen Carroll

Even as confident, competent, self-reliant human beings, we often crave love and find ourselves lonely. There is pain where we yearn for joy. Our response to the isolation of the modern world is to connect with a level of love that is a real connection to all beings. In Buddhism it’s called Lovingkindness.

Acceptance of One Another

Date: 

Sunday, February 19, 2017

Time: 

10:30 a.m.

Speaker: 

Some suggest that Unitarianism began when the Western world's first Edict of Religious Tolerance was signed in 1568 in Transylvania.  It established a no persecution zone throughout Transylvania and a commitment to the acceptance of differences of opinion about the character of God, the nature of good and evil and the role of humanity in the scheme of things. That heritage is with us still and what has it come to mean?
