Sunday, November 29: “Caste in America” (Online Service)

Join our guest speaker, Bill Hackett of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Ogden, as we explore the theme of caste in America. Issues of social-justice have been at heart of ongoing grievances and protests by people of color for centuries. As our UU fellowships in the middle of the western United States tend to be largely composed of white audience members, many of us lack the visceral connection, and understanding of the reality surrounding people of color. Bill will discuss his engagement with a local chapter of Black Lives Matter, and his attempts to move away from being just another clueless and privileged white guy…. Join us this Sunday at 10:30, (Mountain Time)

November 22: “Exiled for Speaking Truth to Power” (Online Service)

Presenter: Rev. Jenny Peek

Over the millennia, we humans have held beliefs so dear that we end lifelong ties of family and friends over dissenting opinions. Yet also we have striven for truce, peace, reconciliation, tolerance and even acceptance of differences. This Sunday, our visiting minister Rev. Jenny Peek of the Pocatello Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will share her reflection on this topic,

It’s been a hard year for all of us with pandemic fears and grief, social upheaval, political destruction, hurricanes, fires, and floods. We are weary to the bone, in need of healing. In this service we turn to Leonard Cohen’s song “Come Healing” which offers a balm for our weary hearts and souls.

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 27: “If you knew me” (Online Service)

Presenter: Rev. Jenny Peek


Our visiting minister from Pocatello, the Rev. Jenny Peek returns this Sunday with her reflection, “If you knew me.”
A simple phrase, in Rev. Jenny’s life she has spoken it, have been used at the beginning of an explanation, as in: “If you knew me, you’d know I never meant harm, offense, disrespect to you in that situation, or regarding that issue.

Reverend Jenny Peek will explore some valid reasons for using the phrase “if you knew me” and help us also to consider how those words might sometimes get in the way of deepening relationships.

Please join us online at 10:30 AM Mountain Time.

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.
