October 11: What does Pilgrimage Have to Do with It? As Unitarian Universalists in 2015 we might struggle to find connection with this odd word, pilgrimage. And as 18 UUs made this journey, we learned about what this meant. How do each of us need to understand the ways we can make pilgrimages in our hearts and minds? In this service Rev. Leslie Takahashi and the trip participants will reflect on this journey of faith.*
*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! We will have a brief orientation to Unitarian Universalism between services in the Redwood Room off Bortin Hall.
October 18: Seeking Sacred Purpose: What do we exist for? What is our role in the world? What is demanded of us? Rev. Nathan Alan Hollister will explore these questions in light of our work for justice, sustainability, and peace.
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!
