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.

May 31: “The Big Pivot” (Online Service)

Presenter: Rev. Monica Dobbins
[UU Minister from First Unitarian Church of Salt Lake City]

We are standing on a threshold between one world and the next: the pre-pandemic world is getting smaller and smaller in the rear-view mirror and the new world post-pandemic is still out of view around the bend. Now we must ask: what is the purpose of the church in this liminal time? What questions can we ask ourselves to help shape our mission as we travel this uncharted road?

Please join us online using Zoom on computer, tablet, mobile phone, or land line. For general instructions on getting started with Zoom, Click Here.

We suggest logging in a bit early to avoid workload for the person who needs to admit attendees. Once the meeting is underway you may have to wait a bit until that person has a free moment. To connect you can click on the link use the connection information below.
