A Month of Sundays

May 19: The Power of We
On this important Sunday as we hold our congregational meeting following the service, Rev. Rost will speak on the importance of coming together as a faith community in our commitment to this congregation as well as to the values and principles of Unitarian Universalism. What can WE do together in the coming year to be, not just the voice, but also the hands and feet and heartbeat of liberal religion in the Front Range region.

Religious Exploration – This session is the last in the World of Wonder curriculum and is designed to hone our seeing, hearing and smelling abilities so that we can be more fully aware of the wonders around us! It will also be the Sunday where we show our appreciation to all who have volunteered in RE.

May 26: Ain’t Gonna Study War No More!

Join us for this special Memorial Day service in which our newly formed dramatic reading group, Eclectic Voices, will share dramatic readings of poetry about the devastation of war and how we can honor those who have served, both the living and the dead.

June 2: The First Source
When the Unitarians and Universalists joined ranks in 1961, they did so with the compass of (now) Six Sources the living tradition of Unitarian Universalism draws inspiration from and Seven Guiding Principles. As we begin exploring the theme of Transcendence, we will take a look at the first source: Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life.

June 9: All Praise, All Praise to the Great Web

This line from a poem by Denise Levertov celebrates the transcendence we can experience in nature, when we dare to put down our cell phones, switch off our computers and seek union with the mystery of the interdependent web of existence of which we are a part. In this alarming time of climate change, now more than ever, we need to experience the mystery of our planet and all living creatures on her.

June 16: Let It Be a Dance!

Perhaps our most powerful moments of transcendence occur in the company of others: Falling in love, finding a soulmate, experiencing the birth of a child, as well as the searing pain of death of a loved one. Although we each must live our own lives, we do so in a dance of connection with others. That’s why churches exist; to help us find meaning in the mystery in the context of human relationships. Join us as we explore this dance of life and how it changes us forever.

June 23: Something Inside So Strong

This day marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion in New York City, when a crowd of mainly dykes, drag queens and transgender womxn fought back against police who had raided the gay bar, The Stonewall. Thus the queer liberation moment exploded into life. In this service, Rev. Rost will explore how these marginalized communities transcended the oppressive narrative they had been taught and found freedom. There will be a picnic following service to celebrate this major anniversary.

June 30: Let Your Life Speak

Each of us has had direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder; self-transcendence occurs when the veil is rent and we see beyond our individual lives to larger context of life.
