"Never Turning Back"

Transformation is different from small-scale change. Transformation often makes it impossible to return to the original state of things. This Sunday we explore the beauty of moving forward and the sometimes scary reality of never turning back.

"Denial is not a River in Egypt"

Nothing in nature is still or static. Like the currents of a river, change happens whether or not we want it to. By avoiding currents, or worse, damming our river, could we be interrupting our own metamorphosis? Our own transformation? Like dropping a stone in a river, the results can have deep ripples in our lives.

"Taming the Fox: the Discipline of Love"

In our fast-paced world of convenience, it is easy to forget that the most valuable things in life take work. This Sunday we reflect on the dedication and persistence that love often requires. We will also consider some of the older traditions of love and friendship, and how they might be revitalized for our 21st Century lives.

“A Unitarian Universalist Crossing”

Unitarian Universalism is not a Christian denomination, but there are individual Christian UUs and we come out of a Christian history. This Sunday, we will reflect on our historical connection to and growth away from Christianity. We will also consider how we embrace our Christian UUs, and respect our religious neighbors.
