Sermon Series: How We Thrive!


During these unprecedented times, our spiritual resources will help us to thrive.  Our UU faith calls us to new ways of life, and new ways of being in relationship with each other.  So much will be reborn as our resilience takes shape. Some of what has guided us before this pandemic will no longer suffice.  Our strengthened faith calls us to seek deeper truth and more expansive love than we ever thought was possible.  It will be hard, we know, and the road will be muddy and rough but we’ll get there.  

We know we will.

During these worship series, we will offer a take-home spiritual practice to get you through until next Sunday. You are invited to send photos of yourselves watching our livestream worship or lighting your at-home chalice to or post on our Facebook page.
