August 16: “How to Dismantle an Empire and What Happens When We Become the Romans” (Online Service)

Presenter: Wyatt Schroeder (Member Boise Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship)
Wyatt S.

We live in a time of empire. Our Unitarian faith is based on the Judeo-Christian tradition, a narrative that is rooted deeply in the struggle against empire. Jesus was a protester, a counter-cultural force that spoke to the disinherited. His apostle, Paul, took up the charge and planted the seeds of a movement to rebel against an empire. And then that faith – then called Christianity – became the empire.

So too happened on our shores, a fledgling revolution created a country that would herald the American Empire. In our daily routine, how do we embrace the empire with its convenience, its charity, and our patient consent? Have we lost The Way? What’s our responsibility to overcome our own convenience for the sake of empowering others? For shirking off charity in the name of transformational change? How can we turn an age of empire into a time of rebellion?

August 2: “Sacrifice and Submission” (Online Service)

Worship Associate: Digger Zout
Presenter: Rev. Monica Dobbins, First Unitarian Church of Salt Lake City

Online Service (Beginning at 10:30 AM Mountain Time):

MonicaDobbinsOther countries have already beaten the Coronavirus and moved on with their national lives. That the United States continues to experience devastating losses says something about us as a nation. It’s especially surprising in a country dominated by a strain of a world religion with sacrifice at the core of its theology.

How do we live in such a time and place, and how do we cultivate the values we seem to be missing?

Newcomers of all religious paths or none at all are always welcome.

July 26: “Centering and Decentralizing: A Response to the Call for Change” (Online)

Presenter: Rev. Jenny Peek

Pastor-Jenny_c_cropAs people of faith, we are challenged to listen deeply and to follow folx [folx: A variation on the word folks, folx is meant to be a gender-neutral way to refer to members of or signal identity in the LGBTQ community] historically marginalized in a white, male and heterosexual gender binary dominated culture.

Recognizing how even as a progressive faith Unitarian Universalism has perpetuated dominant cultural practices—and committing to dismantling all that—is our 21st century challenge. Join us this Sunday as we welcome our visiting minister, Rev. Jenny Peek.
