December 21, 2014:
9:30 a.m. Winter Solstice Service. Leave Me Alone. On the streets, in communities, even in families, we can feel besieged, overwhelmed, isolated. Individual people, groups, and nations often insist that we just want to be left alone. Yet there is a power in our world which simply answers: No. In that power lies our greatest hope for the future.
11:30 a.m. Hanukkah Service. The Light That Lasts. As Unitarian Universalists, we draw wisdom from our Jewish and Christian religious heritage. The timeless story of Hanukkah offers us guidance when reinterpreted in our time. Join Rev. Leslie Takahashi and members of our congregation with Jewish cultural heritage for this service.
December 21 Solstice Celebration. 7:00 p.m. Throughout the centuries, the cycles of nature have been inspiration for those seeking to connect their spirit to the rhythms of the year. Join us for a brief service to observe the coming of the sun. 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. Sunday evening.
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!
