Sunday, November 2, 2014: All Souls Celebration - Revs. Leslie Takahashi and David Morris
Each year we take time to explore our on-going conversation with life and death. In the tradition of Día de Muertos and also in honor of the Christian holiday All-Souls Day which was important in our Universalist heritage, we mark this time. If you have suffered a loss in recent years and would like to process, you are invited to meet 15 minutes before each service at the back of the Sanctuary.
Sunday, November 9, 2014: "The Transient and the Permanent Remade" - Rev. Leslie Takahashi
In every life, change comes in its many forms. As we face a time of seismic change in our society, how can we take the lessons of our faith to remake our tradition to transform lives and create the Beloved Community in this world? How can we use its teachings to prepare us for change in our own lives? Rev. Leslie Takahashi will explore these questions.
A Message From Our Ministers
Throughout our county, people are looking for a place to connect with others and a place to be seen as a whole person. Finding these connections in a world of quick fixes and throw-away relationships is not easy.
We provide those places of deep connection – where people can connect to themselves, to others who hold similar experiences, and to efforts to address real problems faced by our neighbors and our planet. Increasingly, we also learn from the connections which can be made across difference. And within our community, you can receive inspiration, new ideas, affirmation and an embodiment of how we live together in the wider human family.
For more than 60 years, MDUUC has been a beacon in the community and a strong place for people of all generations—our children. We haven’t always done it the same way and we are gifted with a Living Tradition that changes with the new needs of our community. Come be part of what we are creating together!
