An auction-sermon topic! Interesting stuff, to me.

The first in my series on the spirituality of modern US decades; I consider the spiritual lessons of the 1950s. Unfortunately, the first 28 minutes of the video were lost. The video starts at the very end of the choir’s anthem. Don’t miss the postlude!

For Indigenous Peoples Day Sunday, I preached on land acknowledgement and the reality that our church is on the historical lands of the Nashobah Praying Indians. Lorinda Morimoto also shared her own perspective.

I have been reading a lot about Transcendentalism lately. It occurred to me… we are Transcendentalists today! Upon reading further, other UUs agree (notably retired UU ministers Rev. Barry Andrews and Rev. Jim Sherblom, both of whose books confirmed many of the thoughts I have been having, including even Peter Mayer’s “Holy Now” as a Transcendentalist song… great minds think alike? (Unfortunately we had technical difficulties on this day and the first half of the service is missing from this video.)

I preached on a “Talent Auction” requested topic; namely, what is the impact on the spirit of growing up and going through life as an LGBTQ person? We also had a share-the-plate for The Bike Connector.

An annual tradition: on the first Sunday of the new year, we remember those we lost in the past year, and celebrate those born in the past year. Co-led by me (Rev. Lara) and the Deacons.

Our (hybrid) Christmas Eve Service was a little different this year! We started out inside, then ended outside by the fire pit so that we could have some singing. It was lovely!

During “red light” conditions, we worshiped online-only. Guest preacher and FCU deacon Cindy Malley discusses what Christmas means to her as an agnostic.

We did something a little different this year. Because of “yellow light” Covid-19 conditions, we could not do our traditional Cornbread Communion. Instead, the Deacons and I used menti.com to have folks share something that made them feel grateful.
