We all acknowledge our admiration for the members of our society who take action, who give service, who rise above diligently each and every day to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. But who cares for the activist, the fighter of rights, the giver of daily service? Let’s explore how to offer social justice to the world without burning ourselves to the ground.
Speaker: Rev. Jo Green
We all agree that our prison system is failing society. We all agree that it is injurious to so many and yet we continue to support this system, wittingly or unwittingly. In this month of Justice and Black History Month, how can we begin to change this system of systemic violence that not only damages the prisoner but also injures the captor?
Join us this Sunday as we honor two very important people in our community with our Love Hero Award. And then let’s ask ourselves, “Who are our heroes today and where are they?” They may be right before your eyes.
This Sunday we will share our worship with First United Methodist Church as has become the tradition for many years. Rev. Jo Green and Pastor Hee Soon Kwon will lead the service accompanied by a joint choir made up of members of both congregations in the sanctuary of First Methodist. We will be centering on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, his dreams, and the legacy he left the world. We indeed will be following his dream as we share worship with others of different faith traditions.
As a congregation, how often do we invite others into our lives to participate in that which is deeply important to us? This Sunday bring a friend to experience what it is that draws you each week to the people in this community. We will focus on Vision which is our theme for the month. What does it mean to us and how can we accomplish it? We all have dreams of how we want our lives to be – let’s begin now!
On this holy night of the Christian faith of which our roots began, we will celebrate this evening with readings and songs lead by the minister and congregants, ending with a Unitarian Transylvanian tradition of communion. Please join us and celebrate with us, concluding with a candlelight vigil. All ages are welcome to this 5 pm service.
When we’ve been hurt, we go through stages of grief and anger at the loss of the relationship we thought we had. What comes next after forgiveness and gratitude is healing. How we choose to be healed or not will determine our happiness. This Sunday let us learn to heal.
During Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, eight candles are lit, an extra one each day to signify that the miracle grew in greatness each day. Tomorrow is the beginning of Hanukkah. Let’s explore how we can use light to heal while also acknowledging we can heal in the dark.
During this month of Gratitude, we will share with each other what we are grateful for. This Sunday come to listen to members of the congregation for a generational learning of different generations and what they are grateful for. We will also be experiencing a Unitarian Transylvanian communion where we can learn more about our heritage.
The results are in from the election and some are feeling grateful and others are feeling loss. Let’s look for the good in our elected officials and see what the future holds. On this Veteran’s Day, we also will honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for others. Come this Sunday to rejoice in all that we have to be grateful.
