"Listening to the Sound :of Silence."
Sunday, February 17th, 2019
Dr. Michelle Byrd
What do you hear when there is nothing demanding to be heard? Perhaps more importantly, what do you think and feel when you allow yourself to sit in the sacred space of silence? Do the sounds of silence pierce your ears like an alarm bell or soothe your spirit? In this sermon we will pause to explore the power and practice of silence and consider why finding silence is so difficult in our day-to-day lives.

Rev. Julie Brock
Most humans avoid conflict if they can help it. But isn't conflict a necessary result of having diverse perspective working toward the same end? If that is the case, then maybe conflict isn't just inevitable, maybe it is a helpful tool to let us know when we need to listen and learn from one another. Lets talk about ways we can use disagreement, conflict, and all the side effects of being in community to transform ourselves and are we are with one another.

Our theme of the month is Journey. What has been your experience on earth so far? If you were to give a state of the journey address, what would it highlight? We will distill the important elements of our journey through the poetry devise, the six word story.
From Cambridge to CUUB, how we became a faith based in Covenant rather than creed.
Sunday, March 10th, 2019
Rev. Julie Brock
What do we owe one another? How do we structure ourselves to ensure that we are gathering as a free faith rather than a entity of empire? These questions were first answered in 1648 in the document known as the Cambridge Platform. It set out framework for a covenant based faith with congregation polity as its governing document, and it has been a wild ride from there! Come to church to hear all about it and discuss why covenanting is such a crucial part of Unitarian Universalism!
The Power of Storytelling
Sunday, March 17th, 2019
As human beings, one of the simplest and most effective things we can do to understand one another is to tell our stories. I will share our family's story, including raising a transgender son, and what we've learned about supporting vulnerable youth in today's world.

Tasting Every Batch
It's tempting to get caught up in Best Evers and Greatest Hits, but is a memory preventing you from noticing life now? Being aware of the moment helps us build a more thoughtful future.
