The History We Are Making Together

The History We Are Making Together

November 14, 2021

It is so easy to forget that in every moment we make choices that affect the history of our lives, our families, our communities. How do we assert our power with greater intention, making choices that have considered potential impacts on our posterity, in hopes that we will be deemed good ancestors by our descendants in the ages to come?

Election

Election

November 7, 2021

Join us for Worship: “Election” – Dr. Elias Ortega, President of our Unitarian Universalist seminary, Meadville Lombard Theological School will share worship:
Election, as it is known in political terms, is the work of a democracy. Election theologically is something quite different. It is the idea that God predestined some to receive the divine grace of salvation while relegating others to sin and punishment. Our worship service, in the wake of a challenging political election, will inspire hope in the Unitarian and Universalist theologies that, counter to the doctrine of election, see potential, grace, and salvation as inherent for every soul. Glen Rombough, Markus Grae Hauck, Rev Scott, Susie Roan Luna, Laurice Grae Hauck, Brian Crooks, Michael Gilch provide music.
Rev Anya prays and Jill Beckman Gaynes is liturgist.

When Humans Didn’t Have Faces

When Humans Didn’t Have Faces

October 31, 2021

Paleolithic artists rendered the faces of animals on the cave walls but left the humans faceless. Collective effort was more important to them than individual recognition. How do we capture that sense of collective effort, a prerequisite for Beloved Community and Justice making? Rae Dumont and Jennifer Rittner are our song leaders. Michael Gilch on piano and vox and Glenn Rombough on Elec. Gtr. & vox. Rev Anya Sammler-Michael Preaches, Dan Silver is Liturgist, and Rev Scott prays and plays drums.
