Frequently Asked Questions

Sunday at UUCC – April 2, 2023

9 a.m. – Forum Discussion Group – Lower Level-Forum/Library

The Forum Discussion Group is a weekly conversation about current events, civic engagement, religion, emerging thought and more. On April 2, Intern Minister George Grimm-Howell will present “Spirituality of Aging, Part II.” He will share additional poems from his “Found in Wilderness” project. The themes discussed will center on how we process regret and other forms of unfinished business. Participants, based on an example of the final poem in the collection, will be invited to think about the overall arc of meaning of their lives.

9 a.m. – Mindfulness Meditation – Lower Level-Centering Room

Mindfulness Meditation takes place at 9 a.m. every Sunday in the Centering Room. Beginners and experienced meditators welcome. For more information, email Anna Lingo or Susan Pereira.

“Risking Theological Openness” – George Grimm-Howell, Intern Minister

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of the Christian holy week, a time to contemplate cycles of destruction and renewal, death and resurrection. Unitarian Universalists have seen the temple of our faith deconstructed and rebuilt time and again as we risk theological openness and trust in our shared future.

Masks are now optional but welcome and celebrated at our worship services. We will continue to provide KN-95 masks of all sizes for those who need or prefer them and to maintain a culture that welcomes masking. In order to continue to protect our community, we ask you to ensure that you are up to date on Covid vaccination and boosters and to stay home with our online worship offering if you feel sick at all.

Also, please help set up tables and chairs in the Sanctuary, and stay after the potluck when you’re able to help clean up and return the Sanctuary to normal order. Many hands make light work!

“Emergence” was the theme of our worship service on March 26, 2023. In the scientific world, emergence is known as the propensity for complex systems to arise from simple parts. The congregation joined in a playful, imaginative space to find out how we are, together, more than the sum of our parts.
