February 14: When Love Speaks in Tongues. Writer Raymond Carver once wrote a short story called "what we talk about when we tak about love." Too often in the hurry and bustle of our lives, we forget to be intentional about the ways we communicate with whom we are closest and what we fail to think about is "how we talk when we talk about love" or anything else. In this service, Rev. Leslie Takahashi and friends will explore intentions and communication. *This is a "Bring A Friend" Sunday when we invite you to share the religious community you love with someone you think will love it too!
February 21: "A Sort of Splendid Torch." Gloria Steinem once said, "You know, people often ask me, at this age, who am I passing the torch to? And I always say, first of all, that I'm not giving up my torch, thank you very much. But also, I'm using my torch to light other people's torches. Because the idea that there's one torch-passer is part of the bonkers hierarchical idea -- and if we each have a torch, there's a lot more light." Join Denny Davidoff, former moderator of the Unitarian Universalist Association of a sermon on our legacy and engagement.
A Message From Our Ministers
Are you looking for a home for your spirit, your heart AND your mind? If so, please come visit! We come together each week to create a small part of the world we dream of—a world of more connection, more fairness and more peace.
In this frenetic and over-scheduled time in which we live,we all need a real-time contact with others and a place to think about the pressing issues of our times. Our long-standing tradition offers us important guidance for a world with almost too much information and opportunity. We also work to put what we believe into action within and beyond our campus —working with community partners to help bridge differences, reduce inequality, and protect our environment. We welcome people of all races, economic backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender expressions. And on our busy campus you can learn about science AND the spirit, about the religious traditions of the world, meet with others facing the challenges of change and the inevitability of loss, enjoy a meal or a good thought-provoking conversation.
For 65 years, the Mt. Diablo Unitarian Universalist Church has been working to transform lives and the community. Come and experience what has made us a beacon for more than six decades!
