Sermon Series: “Draw the Circle Wide”
Poet Edwin Markham writes:
“He drew a circle that shut me out-
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
But love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle and took him in!
“Draw the Circle Wide” is a worship series that addresses the challenges of inclusion and the different kinds of “wit” necessary to grow our hearts just a little bit larger than we thought possible.
Sunday, April 23: “Draw the Circle Wide” (Rev. Jonathan Rogers)
Opening our individual and collective hearts is an important and valuable spiritual practice. Come and explore what it means to “…Let this be our song, no one stands alone, standing side by side, draw the circle wide.”
Sunday, April 30: “Courage” (Rev. Anthony Makar)
To draw the circle wider, we need to be courageous. But what is courage? Can courage be cultivated? How can we be more courageous in our lives? This sermon was inspired by UUCA member Mike Kuhar, who won the right to choose this particular topic at the 2016 UUCA Auction.
Sunday, May 7: “Music Sunday”
Our music Sunday will feature both of our choirs and a chamber orchestra performing “Kindling” by UU composer Elizabeth Alexander. The composer says, “Kindling, is not a manifesto, no grand statement containing ultimate truths and universal revelations. It is a collection of small reflections on how experience, heritage, and inspiration can cultivate a faith of integrity, service, and joy.”
Sunday, May 14: “Celebrating The Women in Our Lives” (Rev. Anthony Makar)
On this Mother’s Day, we celebrate the women in our lives in a world where they are too often marginalized. Let us draw our circle wider and wider still.
Sunday, May 21: “Annual Coming of Age Service”
“Welcome to Worship” Rite of Passage for 10 y/o students starting to attend worship this year.
