October 11:”How can we create “Stillness of Heart” in a time of turbulence and cruelty?” (Online Service)

Presenter: Debra Smith (Member of the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship)
Worship Associate: Digger Zout

Is it even appropriate to long for a still heart when the world cries for action? Debra Smith will share her journey into the heart of social justice work–a journey into a deeper understanding of collective liberation that brought her face to face with her own fears and defenses. Aided by her Unitarian Universalist faith, Debra is beginning to grow into a fuller sense of stillness that accommodates the disquiet we are experiencing both in the world and in ourselves.

October 4: “The 8th Principle Project” (Online Service)

Presenter: Rev. Monica Dobbins

Unitarian Universalism is a faith in which, it is said, “revelation is not sealed”. Our faith tradition evolves as we learn more about the world and our sense of justice expands. Now, our faith has an opportunity to grow once more, as some Unitarian Universalists propose adding an 8th principle to the seven we have now.

What’s the process for adopting an 8th principle, and what will Unitarian Universalism look like if we do?

The proposed 8th principle: “We covenant to affirm and promote – Journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”

September 13: “Water Communion”

Presenter: Karen Fothergill

Have your water ready!

Join us this Sunday for our Annual Water Communion, a ritual that celebrates our gathering together for a new church year. This year will be different, as we continue to navigate the challenges of feeling our deep connection while maintaining our safe and responsible physical distances.

The Unitarian Universalist Water Communion is a traditional Unitarian Universalist celebration of life, equality, diversity and freedom. Our celebration will be a virtual one this year. Everyone will have the opportunity to pour water of memories into a vessel at home as you tell us the story of the water you gathered over the summer.

After the service, the water poured into your at-home container will be taken outside to water a tree, a favorite plant or perhaps even an interesting looking weed.
