Why Do We Build the Wall?

Taking a theme from the Broadway hit Hadestown, this Labor Day weekend we’ll look at some of the myths of prosperity, such as that it is a zero-sum game, where some must be desperately poor for others to thrive, even survive. Can we rediscover stories that help us to imagine another route to prosperity, or if not, invent some? Special Music: Ihang Lin, pianist

Following the Yarn of Curiosity

You don’t have to go to another country to experience culture shock, or learn a foreign language to practice cross-cultural communication. Opportunities abound right in your neighborhood . . . right in our congregation . . . And as many describe diversity as a threat, it’s a skill the world needs more than ever. Special Music: Melanie Clapies, violin

Mission – What’s Out There

The great Unitarian Universalist theologian, James Luther Adams, articulated five principles (“Five Smooth Stones”) that defined religious liberalism. In this first of a series, we’ll look at the profoundly transformative idea that truth continues to be revealed and that the future, therefore, holds more to discover. Special Music: Margaret Davis and Kristoph, harp and guitar

Today’s entire offering collection will be donated to Hotel de Zink.

The Function of Freedom

As the word “liberal” implies, religious liberalism asserts the centrality of freedom in how we relate to one another, our institutions, and the search for a good life. James Luther Adams and Toni Morrison are our guides as we look at how that really plays out in daily life.

Preaching from the Housetops

The fiddler on the roof is a well-known symbol for the desire to find joy and happiness in very uncertain times such as we are now experiencing. Likewise, a preacher on the roof is a person who always remembers who sent him/her and the message to his/her people. How do we, Transylvanian Unitarians try to take the challenge and speak out? Special Music: Eric Leong, violin
