The Awe of Ordinary Human Connection: How in the World Does That Work?

How is it that sometimes the smallest connections with our human kin—a kind word, a simple gesture, a glance, a nod, a hug—can transform our mood from despair to hope, from weariness to strength? Our Unitarian Universalist theology suggests how and why such connections make a difference. This Sunday we discover ways to bring more of such “ordinary extraordinariness” into our lives.

Worship Leader: the Rev. Nancy Palmer Jones; Worship Associate: Brian and Marnie Singer

¿El Asombro de una Conexión Humana Ordinaria: Cómo en el Mundo Funciona Eso?

¿Cómo es que a veces las conexiones más pequeñas con nuestra familia humana — una palabra amable, un simple gesto, una mirada, un gesto, un abrazo—puede transformar nuestro estado de ánimo de la desesperación a la esperanza, de cansancio a la fuerza? Nuestra teología Unitaria Universalista sugiere cómo y por qué tales conexiones hacen una diferencia. Este domingo vamos a descubrir las maneras de traer más de tan extraordinario"ordinario" en nuestras vidas.

Dirigen: la Rev. Nancy Palmer Jones; Asociado de Culto: Brian y Marnie Singer

Awe and Wonder in the Everyday: The Practice

Please join me for thirty-one days of experiencing awe and wonder in the everyday!

Notice: Find below the list of prompts for each day in May. The prompts suggest where you might look for experiences of awe or wonder. For example, on May 1, “Small,” ask yourself: “What tiny thing or small experience amazes me today?” Whether it’s the bones in your little toe, or a bee dipping into a flower, or a momentary sweet encounter with a stranger on the street—there can be wonder in what’s small.

Post: Share your photo or your writing. First post it to our Facebook group (you can sign up for Facebook for free). In this way, we will inspire and encourage each other through the month. Then send it to our newsletter editors at circular.editors@gmail.com. We’ll publish some of the photos, poems, and paragraphs in our June journal.

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

3-5 Year Olds — Spiritually Growing Child: Teddy Bear Party
If you will show me compassion, then I may learn to care as you do. –Hymn 1012 in Singing the Journey

The theme of this session is that we are all different, but we care about one another and celebrate together. This session engages children in stories and activities about friendship and caring.

1st – 4th Grades — In Harmony
Children will explore Unitarian Universalist’s Principle: The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all—we believe in working for a peaceful, fair, and free world. Children will experience harmony and dissonance through making music together with percussion instruments, playing games that require harmony with your partner to be successful and they will hear a story from China called The Picture on the Kitchen Wall.

5th – 8th Grades — World Religions: Visit to the Sikh Gurdwara
The world religions class visits the Sikh Gurdwara at 11 a.m. today.

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.
