In Person Sunday Service: All the Gifts

We are gathering in person and on Zoom this Sunday at 10:30am! 

“Another way to see the unexpected fruits that arise from the mystery is that when we live in the spirit of the gift, magic happens.” Charles Eisenstein

This time of steady movement towards summer, the trees now in full bloom, is a good time to celebrate all the gifts we give to this chalice community. This time of sorrow at the slaughter of children and elders in the United States in the recent mass murders in Ulvade and Buffalo, is the right time to gather in community and take solace from one another. This Sunday at 10:30am we will celebrate the power of gifts, how generosity and reciprocity create community. What gifts have you given UCM?  What gifts have you received? Leadership Chair Wendy Shusterman and I will honour departing leaders. We also have a gift of music from the choir!

All are encouraged to attend in person on Sunday as shortly after the end of the service we will live our fifth principle by holding the annual general meeting to elect the board of directors and conduct business to maintain our organizational health.  The AGM is in-person only. Your presence, your voice, your vote matters. Friends of UCM are welcome to attend, but only members will be able to vote.

May this weekend bring you many gifts.

More Time for All Ages

This Sunday (the 29th), the story is Wherever You Go by Pat Zietlow Miller. Reminiscent of Dr. Seuss’ Oh, the Places You’ll Go, this text celebrates the journey of life and having new experiences.

The discussion questions below focus on principles 3, 4, and 5. I encourage parents and/or guardians to discuss these questions and share their answers with their families.

Principle 3: Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations/We should accept one another and keep learning together

Principle 4: A free and responsible search for truth and meaning/Everyone must be free to search for what is true and right in life

Principle 5: The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large/Everyone should have a vote about the things that concern them

  • How do you engage in your spirituality within the congregation and in your daily lives?
  • How do you feel when you engage in new experiences? Prepared and/or unprepared? Open to change and/or anxious about expectations?
  • What does having a voice mean to you? What other ways besides voting do you express your voice?
  • How does your spirituality influence the way you experience life and express your voice?
