The High Holy Days of Judaism offer us an opportunity to consider our need for both mortal forgiveness and Ultimate forgiveness. What’s the task?
Rev. Katie Kandarian-Morris
After a tumultuous summer, I’m not sure the Animas River has “peace” but maybe resiliency. What might we learn from our own connection to it? Bring a small vial of water with you today to add to our sturdy stream.
Included in the many ways we express ourselves and our values are the writings on the front (or back) of our t-shirts. You are invited to come to worship wearing a shirt emblazed with what you care about and we’ll demonstrate what is important.
Our faith tells us that “Love Resists” which can make it hard work. What are ways we can find to refill the tank in order to help us keep up the faith?
We’ll examine the virtue of generosity, that thing that feeds our soul while it supports religious living. Today we’ll thank our teachers and lift up the many people who are keepers of the hall.
Our annual meeting following the service inspires our time together today. Bring a flower to offer for our annual flower communion, and consider the meaning of spirit speaking in our lives.
As the Rev. Mary Harrington wrote, “All of us have been mothered in our time, all of us have mothered.” Today, we’ll dedicate some of our babies and children, remembering the gift of life itself and our commitment to each other.
It’s Earth Day! Many around the country will be marching with signs supporting the facts of science. Bring your signs with you to worship today, and we’ll kick off our new recycling program, too.
One of our strongest traditions comes from Humanist teachings “which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science.” Where did this strain come from? How is it with us now?
We are part of a faith that is based on tolerance (and appreciation) for a large range of theological diversity. Nowhere does that feel more apparent than on Easter Sunday, when we take cues from multiple traditions, all intending to celebrate this mysterious time of transformation. Bring a basket for the children’s egg hunt after each service.
