January Theme: Consolation / Desolation

Consolation and desolation are conditions of the human experience. Desolation arises out of loss, grief, failure, fear, sadness, loneliness, and more that have the capacity to destroy us. Some of these may be impersonal, but consolation is always personal. It comes as a profound gift from another: compassion, a willingness to listen without judgement, a kind word, a hug, and other acts of kindness and care.

Memory, Hope, Courage - MLK Sunday

Sometimes the problems of the world seem too big to begin to fix. Other times we see the march of progress as inevitable. This Sunday we explore how both despair and blind optimism are pitfalls for the journey toward justice. Motivation requires the courage to stay connected to both memory and hope.

Speaker: Rev. Kent Doss

January 31

Liberal Religion

Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion, not because of our progressive politics but because of our commitment to the ideals of liberalism. Liberalism in the classic sense is not an ideology, but a method for resolving conflict, gaining knowledge, and advancing toward truth. Our liberal approach to religion and to all that concerns us as religious people is a precious inheritance. Abandoning the principles of liberalism would mean losing an essential part of who we are. Rev. Rick Hoyt-McDaniels received his Master of Divinity degree from Claremont School of Theology in 1998 and was fellowshipped and ordained to the UU ministry that same year. Since then he has served several UU congregations in the Los Angeles area most recently completing an interim ministry for the Long Beach church. He lives in downtown Los Angeles.

Speaker: Rev. Rick Hoyt McDaniels
