We would well served to frame each theme within the context of a question beginning with, “What Does It Mean to be a People of…”
September 15th: “Simple Pleasures & Great Expectations” (Rev. Michael F. Hall)
In a society of extremes: wealth and want, competitive markets and corporate welfare, environmental depletion and unbridled consumption, it is easy to find ourselves caught up in a shallow, “gimme, gimme” lifestyle. Today we will look at this moment in history and how we might arrive at a more just, safe and healthy future. Religious Exploration Committee member Deborah Dunnell shares a favorite story about an American icon. We will share our Joys and Concerns together and take part in a special ceremony to honor and commission our 2019-2020 KUUC Board of Trustees.
IN UNITARIAN UNIVERSALISM, you can bring your whole self: your full identity, your questioning mind, your expansive heart.

THE SIX SOURCES
These are the six sources our congregations affirm and promote.
-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.
