May 31: "The Legacy of Spinoza", Revs. Leslie Takahashi and David Morris. This year's Serv-U Auction sermon was purchased by therapist and retired Rabbi Milton Matz, who invites us to consider the extraordinarily timely thought and dramatic life of this foundational philosopher of the Enlightenment. Considered heretical by Christian and Jewish authorities of his time, Spinoza first articulated many ideas that became vital to our early Unitarian and Universalist religious ancestors. In the new dialogue between science and religion, his time may have finally come!
May 31: Flower Communion and Bridging, Please join Revs. Leslie Takahashi and David Morris and Developmental Director of Religious Education Barb Greve for our annual flower communion service and bridging service. In the uniquely Unitarian ritual of hte Flower Communion, each person brings a flower to place in a common vase and then takes another as a gift of community. In our bridging servie, we honor the transition into young adulthood of our youth. Please bring a flower to share and join us for this very special service.
A Message From Our Ministers
Throughout our county, people are looking for a place to connect with others and a place to be seen as a whole person. Finding these connections in a world of quick fixes and throw-away relationships is not easy.
We provide those places of deep connection – where people can connect to themselves, to others who hold similar experiences, and to efforts to address real problems faced by our neighbors and our planet. Increasingly, we also learn from the connections which can be made across difference. And within our community, you can receive inspiration, new ideas, affirmation and an embodiment of how we live together in the wider human family.
For more than 60 years, MDUUC has been a beacon in the community and a strong place for people of all generations—our children. We haven’t always done it the same way and we are gifted with a Living Tradition that changes with the new needs of our community. Come be part of what we are creating together!
