The Comfort of the Known 
New Member Recognition Ceremony

Bettina Lehovec, Worship Leader
Rev. Sara Hayman, Worship Associate

As humans, we long for a sense of certainty even as we live amid ongoing change. How do we reconcile this tension, particularly as it pertains to our Unitarian Universalist faith? What is it in our ever-changing tradition we can count on? Where do we find the comfort of the known?

3-Church Worship Service: Savoring and Serving  

Covenant Release Ceremony with Collaborative Ministry Intern Bettina Lehovec
Rev. Mariela Pérez-Simons, Guest Worship Leader
Bettina Lehovec & Revs. Amy, Margaret & Sara, Worship Associates

Just as seeds need soil and rain, our souls need nurture to grow into our best selves. What helps us to flourish and what gets in the way? Rev. Perez-Simons will share her theological framework: Savoring and Serving as a way of healing ourselves and the planet, as a spiritual practice, as a social responsibility, as a way of honoring the life-force that moves through us and calls us to give back generously to the whole web of life.

Story   

UUCE Annual Congregational Meeting (at 12pm on Zoom)  
Rev. Sara Hayman, Worship Leader
Bob Dickens, Worship Associate

In the introduction to his book, One Story, One Song, indigenous novelist and story-teller Richard Wagamese, an Ojibway from the Wabaseemoong First Nation in north-western Ontario, says this about the power of stories: “What binds us together as a human family is our collective yearning to belong and we need to share our stories to achieve that. Stories build bridges to undiscovered countries—each other.” Drawing, too, from stories he shares, come reflect with us on how we are “a part of the one story, the one song we all create together.”
