If Another World Is Possible, What Might Unitarian Universalists Do?

The United States Social Forum recently held in San Jose calls for a values revolution and a new plan for humanity and the planet. Once we know the content of our human and planetary needs, we can engage in the exhilarating and transformative task of creating new institutions to meet those needs. What are those needs? What are those institutions? Join UU member Richard Hobbs who will share why we need to operationalize our UU principles, declare independence from our current corporate dominated world, and build alternatives that are democratic, egalitarian, cooperative, kind, and sustainable.

Worship Leader: Richard Hobbs; Worship Associate: Dena Dickinson

Sunday, July 5, 2015

This Sunday is the beginning of our summer curriculum.

Nursery: Birth - 5 years
Location: Nursery, Church’s Lower Level

Our paid staff provide a loving presence and engage children in games, stories and crafts with seasonal and holiday themes.

1st-8th Grades: Circle of Trees/Gather the Spirit

Workshop 4: Trees: Sanctuary for the Spirit
Us sing and dance, make faces and give flower bouquets, trying to be loved. You ever notice that trees do everything to git attention we do, except walk? — Alice Walker, author, from The Color Purple

After several workshops spent learning about trees—how they are structured, what they contribute to life on our planet—this workshops moves into a more expressive and spiritual appreciation for these providers of life.

This workshop will:

  • Encourage personal expressions of gratitude for trees
  • Explore the poetic and artistic inspiration that trees and nature provide
  • Reinforce the concept of interdependence as expressed in the seventh Unitarian Universalist Principle, "Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part"
  • Affirm that stewardship of the earth is an explicit act of faith.

Participants will:

  • Express a deeper connection to trees by sharing personal feelings of gratitude and inspiration
  • Create a poem or drawing expressing gratitude to trees
  • Build on their understanding of and respect for trees through multiple modes of learning, including movement, meditation, and song
  • Experience multigenerational learning.

9th – 12th Grades
The senior high youth group meets from 11:30-12:30 after attending the first part of the 11 a.m. service.  The group offers its members a safe place to share their lives and find support and friendship among open minded and loving peers.  The group engages in discussions about issues relevant to youth’s lives and communities.
