As Unitarian Universalists we do not think a lot about “Grace”–what is or who bestows it upon us. Christian communities around the world see grace as, “unmerited divine (i.e. God) assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification.” But there is something in Grace that would be good to better understand and claim. This Sunday we will be exploring Grace–where it comes from, the good, the bad and the not so UU.
This Sunday we will be Blessing the Quilts made by our Living Our Faith quilters and crafters to be given to hospice centers.
Why is it important to be thankful? Do we sometimes take our gifts and others for granted? How can we share our appreciation for those around us in simple and important ways? Join Rev. Dr, Marjorie Matty as she contemplates all that we have to be thankful for.
Rev. Dr. Matty will be sharing her thoughts about who belongs in community, where the lines exist of “who is in and who is out”, and whether those lines are redrawn moment-by-moment. We know where the love exists but do we dare to show and share it?
We miss those who have gone on before us and this Sunday is a time set aside during our busy year when we can honor, celebrate, feel our loss together in community. As the veil between the worlds, of the living in body and those who have shed their corporeal remains, becomes thin Rev. Dr. Marjorie Matty with be speaking about the traditions of the season. Please bring remembrances/photos/decorations for the Ancestor Altar that will be constructed for this Sunday.
