Stillness of Mind (Online)

Rev. Shayna Appel

We are back to our regular service time. Please note the start time of 10:30am.

This will be the first in a year-long series called “Playing It Forward,” featuring the ideas of Unitarian and Universalist ministers who were preaching in the mid 19th century. The sermons are drawn from collections that have sat on the shelves in the ministers office for no-one knows how long! Sunday’s sermon remains in line with our September Soul Matters theme of renewal and is entitled “Stillness of Mind,” from a sermon by Rev. Ephraim Peabody published in 1857. As an interesting side note, the baptismal font located in the narthex* by the front door of UUCM was donated in Rev. Peabody’s memory. Tune in on Sunday morning as we glean wisdom from those who came before us and maybe even locate a little stillness for our own minds!

Renewal (Online)

through

Rev. Shayna Appel and The Worship Team

We are now back to our normal, regular services. Please note the start time of 10:30am.

September is a season of homecoming for us UUs. And renewal is central to that. At the opening of each new church year, we renew our commitments to each other and our church community. We renew our energy for another year of journeying together.

It’s also a time of renewing our renewal questions. Yes, that sounds odd, but it’s essential to understanding the importance of this month, and the importance of our faith. You see, one of the less noticed roles of religion is its sneaky way of changing our lives by asking us to change the questions we ask. This is especially true when we talk about renewal.

Renewal is our theme for September. Each September service will focus on an aspect of renewal.
