Sunday, November 12, Rev. Fred Howard, “If You See Him in Heaven”

In honor of All Souls Day this past week, I’d like to share some personal thoughts and reflections on the recent death of my best friend (best friend that is, besides Kathy) and how his death has affected my other relationships, my faith, my ministry, and my life. 

Sunday, November 19 – Rev. Fred Howard, “Taking Back Thanksgiving”

As Unitarian Universalists, Thanksgiving should be our holiday. After all, what does Thanksgiving bring to mind if not an open, welcoming table, laden with food from a bountiful harvest?  A table where friends and relatives, brothers and sisters have gone to great lengths and travel great distances to sit together and break bread?  No particular ancient religion can lay claim to Thanksgiving, yet no religion that I’m aware of can find it problematic.  There is such ecumenical appeal and interfaith possibility in the idea of simply coming together in gratitude.  Gratitude is, or should be, the core theology of our movement.  This morning I’ll elaborate.

Share the Plate Sunday: Contributions to the plate, not otherwise designated as pledge, will go to UUSC’s Guest at Your Table program, as part of our annual congregational contribution.   In addition, next week, each family will receive a GAYT donations box and information on joining and supporting UUSC.    

Sunday, November 26, Lars Leader, “Guest at Your Table Kick-off Service”

The theme for this year’s Guest at Your Table program is Small Change is Big Change. This year’s “guests at your table” include a leader of local efforts to respond to climate change in the South Pacific and a Burmese human rights activist. Guest at Your Table (GAYT) is an annual program of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) to raise awareness as well as funds for UUSC’s many outreach programs around the world.   UUSC focuses efforts on the following:  economic justice, rights at risk, and environmental justice.   More information available at:
