  • How We Worship

    Sunday morning can feel like a routine a lot of the time. It is easy to fall into a routine and forget what you are doing, or never ask “why” in the first place. This Sunday we explore some of the traditions of Unitarian Universalist worship to bring a little more intention into our sabbath.

  • Time For Discernment

    Sabbath is all about setting aside time that is different from the daily rush. We have spent a couple of months outside of our normal routine. Before we tumble headlong into the rush of life as usual, what are the pieces of “usual” that we don’t want to return to? This Sunday we consider some of the things we have learned and can take with us moving forward for social distancing.

  • Rituals that Work

    For thousands of years humans have created rituals to give a framework to our days. This Sunday we will talk about how ritual works and how we can incorporate our own personal rituals into the cycles of days, weeks, and years.

  • Chronos to Kairos and Back Again

    This Sunday we explore the ancient Greek understandings of ordinary time (chronos) and sacred time (kairos), and how we might navigate between the two. Abraham Joshual Heschel wrote, “There is a realm of time where the goal is not to have, but to be, not to own, but to give, not to control, but to share, not to subdue, but to be in accord.”
