Services are held each Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
February 4, 10:30 a.m.– “From the Margins to the Center” – Reverend Michelle Yates –
One of the UU “Common Reads” this year is Centering: Navigating Race Authenticity, and Power in Ministry, edited by Mitra Rahnema. It focuses on the stories and insights of UU religious professionals of color as they explore how racial identity is made both visible and invisible in UU communities. Join us to reflect on how we can better understand and appreciate the experiences of UUs of color, as we strive to be more inclusive and multicultural.
February 11, 10:30 a.am. – “Is Anybody Home?” -Reverend Donald J. Reidell
What do we do without our easy God?
February 18, 10:30 a.m. – “Charlotte’s Gift: An adoption story”– Susan Frawley
The greatest gift is one that comes from selflessness. Today’s sermon tells the story of a girl named Charlotte who made such a gift and the events in life that followed that decision. Life has a way of unfolding, sometimes with a grace we can not expect. Come celebrate a story that will touch you and fill you with joy.
February 25, 10:30 a.m. – “Borrowers”– John Snodgrass
Are history and progress moving forward toward some wonderful utopian goal? Or are we cycling back to repeat some of the mistakes of the past? And if we’re going to repeat the past – whose past should we repeat? This sermon will be a look at how some Native American tribes view time and progress. Perhaps re-envisioning our relationship with the past can give us some hope for the future. (John Snodgrass teaches Native American Religions at Canisius College. He lives in Buffalo with his wife and four children.)
A potluck luncheon will follow this service
