September Speakers and Topics

September 6: “First Impressions”
By Paul Darling
In a pre-recorded reflection, he will discuss his first impressions of WVUU, the remarkable people he first met, and the inspiration that compelled him to create a piano for our sanctuary.

September 13: “Grandparent’s Day”
By Rev. Cathy Corbin-Mannino
The true story of the original of this new date on the calendar. The idea for this special day began in the mind of a 9-year old boy.

September 20: “All Our Children”
By Sharon Moore
The Rev. Peter Morales, former president of the UUA, gave a reflection on Mother’s Day in 2007 at his church in Golden, Colorado, titled “All Our Children”. He wanted to remind church members that the youngest of the church were part of the beloved community, too, and that all children deserve and need recognition of their worth and dignity. She will read Rev. Morales’ message.

September 27: “Our Beloved First Principle”
By Rev. Cathy Corbin-Mannino
Our Beloved 1st Principle – the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Are we simply admirers of it or true followers?

We come together at 10:30 am each Sunday morning to shape and define what is of value and worth to us, and to sing, meditate, and share our lives with one another. Our services focus on topics of spiritual, social and current concerns. Our Worship is designed to meet the diversity of spiritual paths that are embraced within Unitarian Universalism. Sunday mornings offer a celebration of community, an intellectual challenge, and a deepening of the heart.

Our Sunday Services are varied and unique, but generally we have an opening piece of music followed by a welcome statement, then a call to worship. Next there is a time for church announcements, and that is often followed by a time for sharing brief personal joys and sorrows. Then we often sing a hymn, which is followed by a children’s story.

After the children’s story, our children usually leave the service to attend classes or play. After the children’s recessional we collect the weekly offering with musical accompaniment, and then the main speaker is introduced. The Minister or guest speaker delivers the sermon, and we conclude with another hymn followed by closing words and then a final musical postlude. After the service we usually have a light lunch, coffee, and refreshing conversation.

There is no dress code requirement for our church. Some folks wear blue jeans and a T-shirt, others wear shorts and a tank top, and a few dress more traditionally in a conservative style. Wear what you are comfortable in, and you will be welcomed!
