Wretch Like Me
January 13, 2019 at 10:00 a.m.
Rev. Dr. Matthew Johnson
We continue our month of “amazing grace” by reflecting on that state of “needing grace.” What do Unitarian Universalists think of “sin” anyway, if we think of it at all? When we are down for the count, and feeling wretched, how do we find a way forward? How might these moments be invitations to spiritual growth?

Dream of Peace
December 2, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.
Rev. Dr. Matthew Johnson

We sing of peace in this season, but violence rages – in Yemen, in Honduras, and in the neighborhoods of our very city. How can our dream of peace become real? How, as Dr. King said, can we make peace “not the destination, but the way”?

Bread
November 18, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.
Intern Minister Christe Lunsford

Bread, a predominant food in a large part of the world and yet culturally it is widely different. From one barker to the next, there is no two loaves of bread that will look or taste the same. As a form of kitchen witchery, bread is often thought to be imbued with magic. 
What magic do we perform when we make bread and what magic happens when we share the bounty with each other?

Sweet Potatoes
November 11, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.
Rev. Dr. Matthew Johnson

There’s a through line between sustainability, freedom, and gratitude. We’ll explore the connections between liberation theology, local agriculture, and ecology through the most pleasant of tubers: the sweet potato. We’ll also give some thought to the work of peace on this veterans day, and reflect on what’s next after the election. See you in church.

Pumpkin Pie
November 4, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.
Rev. Dr. Matthew Johnson

We'll explore the topic of gratitude by reflecting on the most iconic act of thanksgiving: being gathered around a table (for pie!). What does the simple and essential practice of sharing a meal tell us about what it means to be human and to be connected.

Get in Formation: Justice Inside and Out
October 14, 2018
Intern Minister Christe Lunsford

As we continue thinking about our theme of formation let’s look at what sources we incorporate into our lexicon. Which authors do we let in?
Who shapes our thoughts and visions for tomorrow?
Are we quick to dismiss voices based on social stereotypes or  
do we have deep seeded fears that we won’t be able to connect?

Call Us to Action
September 30, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.
Rev. Dr. Matthew Johnson

Our democracy is in peril. People’s rights and humanity are denied on a daily basis. The permafrost melts and children live in changes. What shall we do? How shall we do it faithfully? This is the “storm the battlements” sermon you’ve been anticipating. Courage and plans will be offered, not just doom and gloom. There is hope – but it’s time to act.
