Coming of Age

,

As young people at UUCPA come of age, they spend several months together in reflection on the questions adult UUs grapple with, meet with mentors from the congregation, and articulate their own beliefs in a credo project. They will share their credos and lead the service today. Music: Karen Vandyke, flute

Flower Communion

,

For this intergenerational service, please bring a flower to exchange in our annual ritual. Dan will tell the story of how the Flower Celebration came to be, and we will fill the hall with flowers. We’ll have plenty of extras for those who forget or don’t know about the ritual in advance. We will also welcome new members during this service. Music: Veronika Agranov-Dafoe, piano

Life Passed through the Fire of Thought

In a service last year, Dan Harper delved into why the elements of our Sunday service are what they are. Amy’s going into several of them in depth, one per Sunday, now and then, and this first exploration looks at the sermon. Why do we have one? What is it for?
Special music: M’Earth Tones, a small chorus featuring some of our members and frequent guest cellist Kris Yenney. Their mission is “Creating Harmony in a Dissonant World,” and they encourage us to “think globally, act vocally.”
