Resist and Rejoice
Speaker by Video: Rev. Kimberly Quinn

This week’s service will include readings and songs from a morning service at last year’s GA. General Assembly (GA) is the annual meeting of our Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). Attendees worship, witness, learn, connect, and make policy for the Association through democratic process. General Assembly 2017 (June 21-25) took place in New Orleans, LA, The sermon is a video recording of Rev. Quinn’s message that morning.

Children’s RE:  Summer PlaySpace
Kids and their carers meet in the Courtyard (Rm. 212 if it's raining) for fun and community building.  There will be a bin of outdoor toys and activities available near the courtyard entrance, along with a flameless chalice, chalice-lighting words, the Seven Principles, and Guidelines for Being Together.  Carers can enjoy each other's company while the children play in our sacred space. Carers will share supervision of the children, without a central adult responsible for planning, execution, and supervision. Our objectives for such a fellowship include:

  • building and maintaining multigenerational relationships
  • experiencing comfort and joy related to the church’s physical space and the people there
  • having fun together
  • relaxing together
  • viewing the church as “our house”
  • explicitly offering “permission” to play and just be
  • novelty
  • exploring the value of a less planning-heavy gathering and what it can teach us
  • offering all stakeholders an opportunity to reflect on and plan for spring and fall RE sessions.

We acknowledge that a break from more planning-heavy RE can be healthy both for facilitators and participants. We look forward to a free, fun summer to watch our families grow!   --The RE Ministry

Adult RE:  Sunday Roundtable
Gather in the library (Rm. 105) for attendee-led discussion.  Need a topic?  Pick one from the book or the basket to get things rolling.  Bring your coffee, your curiosity, and your desire for community and join us!

Nursery care is available 9:30-12:00. Room 214
