All Services Start at 10:30 AM
Sunday, May 26: Spiritual Anthropology with Lee Simon
Lee will explore what we term spiritual from three different anthropological perspectives. These are the theological spirit(s), the cultural spirit(s), and the human spirit.
Sunday, June 2: The Gift of Hope with Rev. Russ Savage
Of all the living and sentient beings on the earth, it is likely that humans are the only ones who know the gift of hope. This is so because both hope—and its opposite, despair—have to do with our expectations of the future, and the future is a complex intellectual concept probably not shared by other beings.
Sunday, June 9: Annual Meeting with Dabney & The Board
Join us for our Annual Meeting where we will explore our path forward together as members and friends of UUBRidge, elect new Board officers and approve the budget.
Sunday, June 16: From Generation to Generation (a Multi-Generational service) with Rev. Russ Savage
Our children learn from us, of course. But we also learn from them. This exchange of wisdom from generation to generation goes on all the time, usually without our noticing it. Let’s take a closer look. At this service we will observe the ritual of child dedication and honor those who have worked in our Religious Exploration program this year.
Sunday, June 23: Slavery: A Legacy that Lingers, with Madlyn Bynum
Race is a myth—a social construct without biological meaning—but it was necessary for establishing and maintaining the institution of slavery. Author, Ta-Nehisi Coates, author of Between the World and Me, asserts that the history of this country is the story of people who consider themselves to be members of the white “race,” exercising control over the bodies of those whom they consider to be members of the black “race.” A friend relates a well-intentioned experience that later lead him to regard himself as complicit with this bitter legacy.
Sunday, June 30: Old Turtle and the Broken Truth (a Multi-Generational service) with Brittany Roy & Ellen Adams
We gather in this religious community knowing that truth, even the truth we claim for ourselves, is almost always partial. Yet we gather, with the hope that what we might find here, through our relationships with one another, through our commitment to personal and spiritual growth, and through the lessons and witness of our Unitarian Universalist tradition, that what we find here will be a truth greater than we have known before. And, though it may still only be partial, we seek a truth, or many truths which encourage wholeness and healing among human relations and our relationship to our planet. Join us for this intergenerational service where we will explore truth through this story together.
All are welcome. Entrance is the stairs/ramp on the right as you face the building. A social hour follows the service. Contributions of finger food are welcome. Dress is casual.
An adult is available on request to provide care for your infant or toddler during the service. If your child is restless, feel free to move to the comfortable lounge area through the double wooden doors.
