November 29: "Gratitude and Community" This is a multi-generational service at 10:30 a.m. This is a weekend marked in the nation by the holiday of Thanksgiving and thanks for the bounty of nature is part of the liturgical practices of all people. How do we install a true spirit of gratitude into the rest of our ordinary days? Join Rev. Leslie Takahashi and Intern Minster Ranwa Hammamy in this service which will include our annual bread and cider communion which this year will be enhanced by our Transylvanian pilgrimage learnings!
December 6: "The Cure for Holidayitis." On this, the first day of Hanukkah, we recognize the holiday season is in full swing. What does that mean for us as Unitarian Universalists? How do we honor the season and not find ourselves overwhelmed by its inevitable stresses? Rev. Jason Cook will look toward Hanukkah as a source of wisdom for our lives.
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!
