Showing Up Today for the Community of Tomorrow

Showing Up Today for the Community of Tomorrow

July 25, 2021

In the last 16 months, showing up has taken on new meaning as we connected virtually. Some of us are even deepening and renewing our commitments in community. There are always ample reasons to show up....or not! As life shifts again, how do we discern as UUs when to show up and for whom?" This edition of the 2021 North Jersey Summer Swap Worship Series features the staff of Beacon, the UU Congregation in Summit. Musicians and lay leaders from Beacon are led by Rev Emilie Boggis. Tuli Patel and Rev Robin Tanner.

Regeneration

Regeneration

July 18, 2021

Turning to the monarch butterfly as our guide and teacher, we'll examine both its individual transformation from larvae to butterfly and its multi-generational transformation as a species migrating across an entire continent each year. We'll consider the ways in which such transformations play out in our individual lives and collectively across generations. This July 18, 2021 edition of our July Summer Swap Series features Rev. Alison Miller from Morristown UU Fellowship and Rev. Andrée Cornelia Mol from Central Unitarian Church in Paramus. UUCM member Stearns Matthews, Director of Music Ministries at MUUF, also makes a special appearance.

Rev Ann Marie Alderman, Revs Anya and Scott Sammler-Michael are featured in this service.
