Upcoming Sunday Services

Services for January, 2018

Monthly Theme: Intention

January 7

Meeting Yourself
Rev. Doug McCusker
Worship Associate: Cameron Hardin
Handbells will perform

If you meet yourself on the side of the road, would you recognize that person?  Where is that road taking you?  This month, as we explore Intention, we will talk about what it means to pull ourselfves into who we truly are, rather than pushing us out into a “new and improved” person.  Join us for the Fire Communion ceremony to mark the new year and symbolically let go of things from last year that we want to leave behind.

January 14

The Right of Conscience
Rev. Doug McCusker
Worship Associate: Andy Cameron
Adult Choir will perform

True freedom on religion is the guarantee that all are free to follow and practice their faith–or no faith at all–without governmental influence or interference.  Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. might have said it best, that the church “is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state.  It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool.”

January 21

The Four Agreements
Rev. Doug McCusker
Worship Associate: Bill Johnson-Miles

Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, The Four Agreements reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs and offers a powerful code of personal conduct that can enable us to experience the freedom, happiness, and love at the core of our being.  Based on the best-seller by Miguel Ruiz. If you read it long ago, brush off the dust and renew your commitment to living a life of integrity.

The Power of Words
Lee Anne Washington, Ministerial Intern, First UU Church of Richmond
Worship Associate: Kristen Tuxbury

Sometimes we say things without thinking. Sometimes we don’t say what we mean or don’t mean what we say. Often, we have no idea how our words are affecting those around us. In this sermon, Lee Anne explores how mindful and intentional speech is an essential part of living into the beloved community.
