Upcoming Worship Services:

February 26 | 9 & 11 a.m.
The "Good News" of Unitarian Universalism
Rev. Abhi Janamanchi
There is a lot more to Unitarian Universalism than meets the eye. Our non-creedal, non-dogmatic religion features neither the certain mind nor the empty mind. Instead, it fosters an open mind and a compassionate heart that can confront a novel proposal, handle an old wound, or explore uncharted territory. And in that sense, we are not free to believe what we please, instead, we are free to believe what we must and act on those beliefs and values with integrity, passion, and commitment.

March 5 | 9 & 11 a.m.
Taking Risks
Rev. Abhi Janamanchi
Unitarian Universalism is a risky religion. What risks should we be taking so that we can make a difference in the world, bring the good news of love and reason and open-minded faith to a world that needs it now more than ever? What risks should we take, now, as individuals and as a religious community? The service will explore risk taking as a spiritual practice.

March 12 | 9 & 11 a.m.
Beyond the Golden Rule

Norman Allen, Intern Minister
The great Shinto teacher Munetada Kurozumi went beyond the Golden Rule’s call to treat our neighbors as ourselves and taught that “The heart of the person before you is a mirror. See there your own form.” It can be a risky endeavor to see ourselves reflected in our neighbors – especially when that neighbor is someone on the far side of the growing social divide. Together, we’ll take that risk, and look at the personal and spiritual gifts to be uncovered in the challenge Kurozumi sets before us.

March 19 | 9 & 11 a.m.
Rev. Peter Morales, UUA President & Rev. Abhi Janamanchi
On Commitment Sunday, we welcome our UUA President, the Rev. Peter Morales, as our guest preacher.

March 26 | 9 & 11 a.m.
Our Iceberg Is Melting!
Rev. Abhi Janamanchi
Change. The word is enough to make some people shudder in anticipation – like waiting for the other shoe to drop. For others, it’s the juice that makes life most interesting. No matter what your feelings, there is one truth about change: change is a certainty. It is one of the few constants. How we choose to risk – or resist – change, determines what transformations take place in our own lives.

March 26 | 4 p.m.
Pratima Dharm’s Ordination Service
Revs. Rebecca Montgomery, Scott Sammler-Michael, Abhi Janamanchi & others
Ordination is the act by which a person becomes a minister. It is a ceremonial and joyous occasion with deep roots in our polity and heritage. Join us for a special service to ordain Cedar Lane member Pratima Dharm into the Unitarian Universalist ministry.

April 2 | 3 p.m. 
The Spirit Experience: Colors of Spring
