SUMMER SUNDAY DISCUSSIONS SEPT 1ST, “‘School Days’: Readings Good Enough to Share and Hear Again.”

“‘School Days’: Readings Good Enough to Share and Hear Again.” There are no censors but what is anticipated is a nice combination from scripture readings to the words of favorite folk songs. Please come to share and hear.

Sept 8, Benjamin Van Dyne, “The Ceaseless Cry that Wakes the Dead.” 

Welcome all to the start of traditional Sunday services.  This is the beginning of UUCR’s 27th year,  which we will celebrate with an “Incoming and Water Communion.” The sermon will begin a two-part series addressing the challenges and joys we face in seeking to live with love and hope even when those seem impossible. Benjamin Van Dyne returns to our pulpit bringing the wisdom of novelist James Baldwin to shed light on troubled times. It will focus on Baldwin’s novel, If Beale Street Could Talk, a story of surviving violence, danger and racism. It has lessons for us about how to love and persevere.

If you have water from summer travels – near or far — remember to bring it for our traditional Water Communion ceremony. We’ll also have water from the beautiful Chester to share.
