Creating Space for a Wider Welcome

Welcoming is most often associated with “bigness.” We speak about “expanding the circle” and making more room. We talk about making ourselves larger by welcoming in new experiences and new ideas. But there is also the work of becoming smaller. Welcoming regularly involves the smallness of humility and the willingness to listen and learn. It’s a curious and wonderful truth: the road to widening the circle often starts with limiting our own size. This Sunday we explore when and where it is spiritually healthy to make ourselves “smaller.” And we discover how becoming “right-sized” in our ego, our preferences, our needs, and our voices can make us better able to welcome in and receive the gift of “more.”

Worship Leader: The Rev. Nancy Palmer Jones; Worship Associate: TBA

Creando un Espacio para una Recepción Más Amplia

Más a menudo la bienvenida se asocia con "grandeza." Nosotros hablamos acerca de "expandir el círculo" y hacer más espacio. Hablamos de hacernos más grandes dando la bienvenida a nuevas experiencias y nuevas ideas. Pero también es el trabajo de hacerse más pequeños. La acogida regularmente implica la pequeñez de la humildad y la disposición a escuchar y aprender. Es una curiosa y maravillosa verdad: el camino de ensanchar el círculo a menudo comienza con limitar su propio tamaño. Este domingo exploramos cuando y donde es espiritualmente sano para hacernos a nosotros mismos "más pequeños". Y descubrimos cómo ser "el tamaño adecuado" en nuestro ego, nuestras preferencias, nuestras necesidades y nuestras voces nos pueden hacer mejores en la bienvenida y recibir el don de "más".

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 - 4th grades Soul Matters & Stories of Courage & Wisdom
This class will be engaged in Soul Matters themes that will be explored in Sunday services: Welcome, Courage, Appreciation, Wonder, Intention, Devotion, Balance, Emergence, Imagination and Celebration. The children will experience these themes in the stories of people who have acted with courage and wisdom in their attempts to fully live their lives and make the world a better place. Each session strives to be experiential and is designed to engage children in three fundamental spiritual experiences; what we call “the three S’s.” Silence = meditation, listening, mindfulness. Service = leadership, helping others Sunshine = connection with our bodies through movement

5th - 8th grades — Crossing Paths: World Religions

Crossing Paths celebrates the values that religions share, but it emphasizes their uniqueness. Every world faith tradition was born in response to a distinct human struggle. We honor religions best when we work to understand the challenge and aspiration each religion has devoted itself to. Crossing Paths invites youth to see the religious landscape as “Many Mountains, Many Paths.” The class will also visit the diverse faith traditions that call Santa Clara County home. Among the faiths to be studied include: • Unitarian Universalism • Mainline Protestantism • Historic Christian Peace Churches (Quakers, Brethren, Mennonites, Amish) • Christian Evangelicalism (Mega Church) • Catholicism • Judaism • Islam • Buddhism • Hinduism • Wicca

Map Sunday — The first Sunday of each month. This is when youth begin to learn about the religion that they will visit in a couple of weeks. We take an experiential learning approach, using ritual, activities and sensory experience.

9th-12th grades— Balcony Level above Hattie Porter Hall, Youth Room
The senior high youth group meets from 11:30a-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.
