WORSHIP SERVICES are held at 10AM. RELIGIOUS EXPLORATION SERVICES are held simultaneously for your children.
July 21 “Action Heroes” (Rev. Michael)
In the past few years, popular culture has seen a renaissance of super heroes: in comics, on tee shirts and especially in the movies. Some might say that this is simply the marriage of an immature, easily distracted and escapist populous to a greedy and unimaginative entertainment industry. Rev. Michael prefers to see in the likes of the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man and Black Panther models for truth, meaning, the dilemmas of our time, mythic retellings of how things came to be and how they could be.
July 28 “Blessed Are the Peacemakers” (Matt Aversa)
Once again, this summer we are glad to have our own Matt Aversa leading a service. There are rich and wonderful things happening in his life beyond being recently elected as KUUC’s President- Elect. Matt is in formation to become a Third Order Franciscan in the Interfaith Order of Sts. Francis and Clare. In this service Matt explores how living “the rule” of St. Francis, steeped in contemplative practices, has deepened his Unitarian Universalist faith and brought him peace in a disjointed world.
SUMMER WORSHIP SCHEDULE (July 1 – September 1):
August 4: “Mary Oliver’s Poetry: A Different Theology?” (Andi Johnson); August 11: “Fairgrounds and Blue Highways” (Rev. Michael); August 18: “Sometimes It’s the Purple” (Jenn Wyman); August 25: “On Interfaith Community” (Sandra Whippie);
September 1: “Potluck Communion” (Carl Jacobs)
IN UNITARIAN UNIVERSALISM, you can bring your whole self: your full identity, your questioning mind, your expansive heart.

-Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life;
-Words and deeds of prophetic people which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love;
-Wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;
-Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;
-Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit;
-Spiritual teachings of Earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
