Rev. Jeremiah Kalendae, preaching

Jewish tradition honors the sanctity of this time as the beginning of the New Year, the period of judgement, and the Day of Atonement. Join us as we reflect upon the High Holy Days of this tradition and find their relevance to our lives and the world.

Blessing of the Animals

Rev. Jeremiah Kalendae, preaching
Cassie Winters, Worship Associate

ONE SERVICE AT 10:00 am

Our 7th Unitarian Universalist Principle is: “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” This service we will celebrate our animal companions with a special service of blessing as we consider our roles in the interdependent web of life. This will be a multigenerational service, and you are invited to bring your animal companions to the service with you this morning.

Please bring your pet in the safest way possible — for them to feel safe as well as for the other animals around them (including people).  If coming to church is not your pet’s idea of comfort and reassurance, bring a picture of them, or a toy they like to play with, so that they can be blessed in the same way they provide a blessing to you.

“Called to Belong”

Aubrey Sassoon, preaching
Cassie Winters, Worship Associate 

ONE SERVICE AT 10:00 am

Are there places you know you just belong? Places you don’t need to explain or qualify your being there, or being with those people. Each of these might feel like a home of sorts, but for many people the very places and people they don’t feel like they belong to can be intrusive and traumatic,leaving a feeling that affects even the places they should feel safest. Come worship the inherent worth and dignity of all, to belong.

“Through Endless Seasons”

Rev. Jeremiah Kalendae, preaching
Saunder Choi, Director of Music
Abby Arnold, Worship Associate

ONE SERVICE AT 10:00 am

This is UUSM Music Program’s music of remembrance service offering. It will feature British composer Will Todd’s Footprints Choral Suite, as well as other music selections. Footprints was inspired by Mary Stevenson’s poem Footprints in the Sand. Though the original poem has a clear religious tone, the choral suite draws on the more universal elements of friendship, responsibility, and reaching out, especially in a time of loss and grief.
