HOW WELL CAN YOU DESCRIBE YOUR UU FAITH?

Adult RE Classes 

Sometimes, it's easier to explain what we DON'T believe than what we DO believe. If you would like to deepen your faith and gain confidence in your ability to explain it to others, consider joining our 4-part program on "Articulating Your UU Faith." Sessions will be held after services on Dec. 3, Dec. 17, Jan. 14 and Feb. 4. It is ideal to attend all four, but you are welcome to attend whichever sessions you can. Lunch and childcare will be provided. More...

A Message from
Rev. Beth Marshall

Blessings of the season come in many forms. Some of the obvious ones come to mind immediately – family, friends, work that has meaning, a warm place to sleep at night.

However, in a time that might be described as anxious or turbulent, many of us are finding ourselves somewhere between angry and discouraged, and apathetic and numb, which makes it difficult to see the other blessings in our lives.

As an unabashed optimist, I am seeing a hidden blessing tucked inside all the turmoil. As a community of faith, we are blessed to have a community that holds us, encourages us, and reminds us of the good all around us.

More than even a year ago, our families need a safe place where we can thoughtfully discuss difficult and challenging ideas, where divergent opinions can be expressed without fear of judgment or recrimination.

More than even a year ago, our families need a safe place where our children can learn in love, and not in fear, and where our deepest concerns will be met with thoughtful responses.  UUCGC is such a place, a blessing to each individual and family who call it their spiritual home.

As the winter unfolds, one of the greatest blessings we can give each other is that of presence.  As December gains more speed, and the winter holidays approach, I hope for you moments of calm, peace and love, surrounded as you are able by dear friends and loved ones.

See you in church,
Rev. Beth
