Vision of a Unified Country
Sunday, September 23rd, 2018
Elissa Slotkin has a vision of a community brought together through the common mission of caring for each other. CUUB focuses on creating community as a core part of our mission. How, in this divisive time, can we come together as one community and commit to a future we can all believe in? Come to church to hear a community organizer talk about what it takes. It was one of Jim Swonk's last wishes that Elissa Speak in our pulpit. He was a man that understood the need to work together through differences. Let's honor our own values and his legacy with this exciting speaker.

Progress is the de facto religion in the industrial world. But something has changed in America. What happens when we progressives ‘lose the faith’?

Just saying the word “sanctuary” brings one a sense of peace and safety. It can bring back conflicted memories for some, but for most of us the idea of sanctuary conjures up feelings of being protected. Like its close cousin refuge, it speaks to the universal longing for a space to retreat from the dangers and depletions of the world. One thinks of the family ties and friendships that protect, restore and heal us. The sanctuary movement and its refuge for immigrants is another powerful example of offering life-giving safe space. As the well-loved Irish proverb puts it, “It is in the shelter of each other that the people live.” - Soul Matters
Let us give thanks and rejoice for what sanctuary we are offered and that we may offer to the world.

The Shelter of Each Other
Sunday, October 21st, 2018
Rev. Julie Brock
Psychologist Mary Phiepher says that what people really need is ``protected time and space’’ in which we can connect with one another and with nature. I always say, you don't have to show up every Sunday morning, but please don't stop going to church. In other words, we don't have to be your sanctuary every week, but it is important that you do find sanctuary for the hectic circumstance of human living. Let's carve out some time to talk about why the practice of protected time is so important.
