We need not think alike
to love alike

Music is to the soul what
words are to the mind

" Spark the spirit and the mind.   

Kindle the loving community. 

Ignite social justice in the world. "

 

"Life is a gift for which we are grateful.

We gather in community to celebrate

the glories and the mysteries of this great gift."

What provisions shall we make for this pilgrimage, the journey of life? In this service we will explore how Unitarian Universalism helps us to take only what is needed, to trust the path, and to let go of all that no longer serves with grace and thanksgiving. The world we knew is passing, join us on this new, spiritual journey. Life is a pilgrimage.

“You shall not dwell in tombs...” Kahlil Gibran once wrote. Our homes are so much more than a safe anchor, our homes are our sails. In this service we will celebrate all of the possibilities of home as the place where our pilgrimage into the world properly begins.

There are spaces that enlighten us, which is to say: physical places that inspire us and elevate our sense of well-being. In this service we will consider the power of place, and the unique elements of design: light, shadow, form and emptiness that uniquely call us out of our heads, and deeply into our hearts and spirits.

"Boldness has Genius, Power and Magic in it

So let us be bold in our living and in our loving

Bold in our giving and in our forgiving

So that the world awaited might become more nearly

the world attained.​"
