Services for May, 2017
Monthly Theme: Embodiment
When Body Meets Soul
Rev. Doug McCusker
Worship Associate: Kristen Tuxbury
Handbells will perform
Does our unique animating spirit inhabit our bodies, or does our body inhabit a larger, collective spirit of life? The answer comes from within us whenever we enable ourselves to love. When our body and soul flow together we become the physical embodiment of universal love.
The Able Being
Rev. Theresa Soto
Worship Leader: Rev. Doug McCusker
Adult Choir will perform
Ableism, the practice of regarding people as inferior because of their different physical abilities, disregards the multiple ways that people are present in our community. Our bodies do not define us. We all have different abilities and talents that make us unique and special beings. Rev. Doug and Rev. Theresa Soto will explore how our UU faith, spirituality and anti-ableism intersect.
