From the Minister – March 2024

The spiritual theme for March is Transformation, and our worship services are working out to be engaging in the related ideas of listening, growing, and health, and how those connect with the practice of covenant.

From the Minister – February 2024

Our spiritual theme for the month of February is Justice and Equity, following with the other themes this year taken from the proposed Article 2 Values under consideration.

Jenna Nicholls Concert at UU – March 3!

Whether she’s belting out a New Orleans style dirge, plucking her 1920’s style original ballads on her Ukulele, or singing a cowboy tune, or a lush ballad on the piano, the music of Jenna Nicholls is giving a vintage genre a new spin with her own lush nostalgic style and melodic sensibility.

Hiroya Tsukamoto Concert at UU – March 22!

Eclectic, immersive and mesmerizing, beautifully raw, and cathartically emotional. World-renowned, self-made musician Hiroya Tsukamoto embodies the notion that music has no language. Compositions combine instrumental guitar with lyrical performance and spoken stories from his life.

From the Minister – January 2024

Moving into the new year lets reflect about celebrating our accomplishments and honoring our losses? What about letting go of what’s been holding us back and making space for what’s yet to come? What possibilities are we looking forward to? What commitment will you make to helping build a more just, more beautiful, more peaceful world?

From the Minister – December 2023

The spiritual theme we’ll be reflecting on together this month is Mystery. (Another thing I look forward to is whatever theme is designated for December — I have loved them all!). Mystery in a spiritual and religious context for me is a little different than a science context — I think of mystery as an appreciation for what we do not, and sometimes cannot, know or understand. There can be something deeply beautiful and vital to our humanity in that.

Holiday CONCERT at the UU!

Enjoy the Holiday Concert with South Korea-born Dr. Kowoon Lee! She is a strong advocate of music by women composers. An enthusiastic performer and lecturer devoted to contemporary music, this lecture-recital showcases composers from Korea, Mexico and the USA.

From the Minister – November 2023

The spiritual theme for November is Generosity. It seems like generosity is often discussed in the frame of “time, talent, and/or treasure,” which is a helpful way to think about it. But generosity is also about time in the sense of what and who came before us and what and who will follow. That is, the generosity of our ancestors and the generosity we will leave as ancestors.
