Holidaze

December 7 - Rev. Dr. Tom Owen-Towle

December is the roughest time of the year for many folks, including upbeat UU folks.  How do we deal with doom and despondency during December?  How can we experience deep and abiding joy?The Rev. Dr. Tom Owen-Towle is a minister, author, guitarist, magician, mentor, and volunteer.  This service will be the first time that Rev. Owen-Towle has preached to our congregation.

 

Encountering the Divine – An All-Music Service

December 14 - Scott Roewe, Monica Bowser & UU of SCV Choir

Featuring Special Guest Music Ensemble, The Isaura String Quartet

We will hear beautiful music performed, and we will sing together in holiday song. The intention is to create a divine experience. Led by Scott Roewe, Monica Bowser and the UU of SCV Choir.

 

Divine Presence

December 21 - Rev. Peter Farriday

In his 1841 essay, The Over-Soul, Transcendentalist leader (and former Unitarian minister) Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “We live in succession, in division, in parts, in particles. Meantime within man [sic] is the soul of the whole; ...the eternal ONE.” Plugging into this “unified field” is the heart of religion, because when we do, healing and compassion flood into us. Rabbi Jesus channeled this divine force in his ministry, and we celebrate his genius. Then the question becomes: How can we “plug in and pass it on?

 

Marking the New Year

December 28 - A MultiSpeaker Service

This will, of course, be our last worship service for the calendar year.  We will mark the occasion by creating a multispeaker service similar to our "circle services."  The theme for the service will be a blend of the topic for December, "Divine Presence," and the topic for January 2015, "Wisdom for the New Year."  How do these topics relate to each other?  To you and the world around you?  Please share your wisdom and experiences!  To speak for the announced topics for a maximum of three minutes, please reserve time by contacting Worship Team member Erik Felker at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
