Through music, poetry, silence, and words, our weekly services re-ground us in love and service. Each week, the sermon seeks to inspire our hearts and minds and to explore what gives our lives meaning and substance. We embrace the meaning of “worship” from the Old English “worth-scipe” as worthiness or ascribing worth to something.
Our minister, the Rev. Dr. Emily Melcher, preaches once or twice each month. She notes that worship is the primary spiritual practice for many Unitarian Universalists, renewing our spirits, inviting us into deeper connection with ourselves and the sources that nurture, sustain, and challenge us, and encouraging us to live into our unique calling in the world.
On Sundays when Emily is not in the pulpit, our services vary greatly, with guest UU ministers and lay speakers, speakers from other faith traditions, community organizations, and our own congregation. Topics are wide-ranging, including religious responses to the happenings in the world, calls for justice, and wisdom from prophetic women and men throughout the ages. In this congregation, like Rilke, we “love to question our answers,” frequently challenging our assumptions about truth and faith.
