December’s Soul Matters Theme is: Expectation 

December 6, Perhaps. Your minister draws from the essay above “the holy angels of ‘perhaps.’” This service looks at expectations met, unmet, turned sideways or unexpected, that realm of our living better known as “perhaps.” 

December 13, We consider “acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations.” We turn again to our principles for Rev. Jim’s look at the muddy arena where layers of meaning cohere and the work in our congregation to promote spiritual growth. 

December 20, The Turnings of Time. Intergenerational. Sky and Suzanne (or Sky and Rev. Jim) will lead an intergenerational service recognizing the Winter solstice and sharing natural process celebrating this turn of season. 

December 24, 6pm, Seasonal Stories. Intergenerational. Sky Stewart and Rev. Jim share holiday stories intermingled with hymns and carol anthems of the season. Our offering will be for the UUSC. We also collect the Guest at Your Table boxes. 

December 27, From Your Questions: How Can I Both “Live in the Moment” AND “prepare for the future?” We look together at the full range of living our lives in an ongoing series of moments as we ask, “Where do we pay our closest attention? Do we look at what happens now? Or, do we focus on what comes later?

Economic Inequality PDF Print E-mail

Economic inequality…income inequality…wealth inequality.  It’s a popular topic right now, with newspaper columns and blogs considering it and the UUA adopting it as a study issue.  Is it really a problem?  If so, what does the problem look like?  What’s causing it?  What can be done about it?


Your economic inequality ministry – Shirley Peak, Bruce Blenkarn, Suzy Mague – have been studying the materials available and will lead study sessions for CCUU members and friends; members and friends of the other GNOUU churches; and members of the general public who want to join us.  We have scheduled two sessions:  Monday night, November 30, 7 p.m.; Monday night, January 11, 7 p.m., both at the church. A third session is anticipated during March. At our first session we will consider current economic conditions, focusing on a list of questions.  Two examples:  How does the pay of the average CEO compare to the pay of the average worker in the same firm?  Did the income of the average American increase or decrease, adjusted for inflation, between 2009 and 2012?  Having reviewed the information, we anticipate a thoughtful discussion of whether this situation is a problem, and if so, why?

We invite you to join us to explore this important topic.  Please talk with any one of us if you have questions.

The Soul Matters Theme for November is: Ancestry

November 29, We Consider "Justice, Equity, and Compassion in Human Relationsions" With this message, on our second principle, Rev. VanderWeele provides a commentary on the way our faith has bound three demanding ethics into a package and applied them to the way we treat each other in our homes, our church, our neighborhood, community and the world.
