January Speakers and Topics

January 3: “Unwavering Human Spirit & a Dystopia Foretold”
By Emily Whitmore
Exploring society and pop culture’s fascination with the apocalypse as we stare down the barrel of climate change, why the world is worth fighting for, and what is the force that keeps us going.

January 10: “Desolation”
By Rev. Cathy Corbin-Mannino
Shakespeare wrote “My desolation does begin to make a better life.” Let’s explore how that apparent contradiction in terms can prove to be true.

January 17: “In Honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and the Black Lives Matter Movement”
By Tom Begush
This service will show how long lasting the fight for racial justice is going to be. MLK’s word ring out with hope and promise to challenge the prejudice that still remains.

January 24: “Consolation”
By Rev. Cathy Corbin-Mannino
Victor Hugo believed that “it is in books that wise people derive consolation in the troubles of life”, while MLK, Jr. wrote that music is the best consolation for despair. I have found both statements. This talk takes a closer look at what can give us consolation.

January 31: “Holocaust Remembrance”
By Maryke Deschamps
Our long time member will share some history of the tragedy of the Holocaust and also shine some light into that dark place.

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!
