Summer Sundays at UUCC

7/2 – Deb Downing – The Color Purple
Deb Downing will reprise “The Color Purple” service she created ten years ago using Shug’s philosophy from Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel, as well as how the actual color purple is a part of lives. Congregants are invited to wear purple to the service.

7/9 – Andrea Westcot – The Last Lecture: Saying “Yes” to Life
What values do you live out in your life? If you could, what truth would you speak to the world? This service is inspired by Randy Pausch’s bestselling book, The Last Lecture, as well as the teachings of Parker Palmer. During the service, we will combine active reflection, song, and spirit to discover what each of us has to teach the world.

7/16 – Michele Nierle – Roots Hold Me Close, Wings Set Me Free
In this service, we will explore the concept of going deep into our roots – our connection to the earth, ourselves and each other- as a portal to open the wings of our hearts and lean into the light.

7/23 – Sandra Morton – Passion, Purpose and Another Word That Stars With the Letter P
Join us this week for Sermon Sprinkles with Sandra. Using humor, authenticity and intent to inspiration, Sandra will share stories of how listening to your inner voice reveals your true passion and purpose; how tapping into you passion energizes your life and heals the world.

7/30 – Walter Clark – The Elephant in the Room
Walter Clark is a Unitarian Universalist candidate for ministry and recent graduate of Meadville Lombard Theological School. He served as an intern minister for two years at the Unitarian Universalist of Richmond, VA and for 9 months at the Unitarian Universalist of the Peninsula in Newport News. We Unitarian Universalists have six sources for our faith and encourage our members to explore their spirituality fully. With the multitudes of perspectives and beliefs, how do we find a commonality between all of us and address the differences that are the elephant in the room?

8/6 – Cathie Stivers – An Indigenous Perspective of Our 7th Principle
As Unitarian Universalists, we covenant to affirm and promote respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. Rev. Cathie will share from her book-in progress, describing how “Interdependency” and “Belonging” are indigenous practices that are appropriate for all people and for all times.
