Our November Service Theme is Attention...


November 3 | 9:30am & 11:30am  Tending Our Memories.  The Memory Altar

Our memory altar draws on the Christian tradition of All Souls Day, a time held to honor the loved ones (human and not) and ancestors who have gone before us in death, and begin transforming precious memories into sources of strength? We invite you (children, youth, and adults alike) to bring a memento, photo, small object, or memorabile in honor of these loved ones and build up the altar.


November 10 | 9:30am & 11:30am "Stay Tuned"

When 100 stories insist on every second of our heart's attention, where in this world do we start? Tools for discernment, priorities, and sustainability when every cause is worthy, no one can wait, and today's just begun.


November 17 | 9:30am & 11:30am Mending the Rending and New Member Recognition

Spiritual approaches to manage, renew, and deepen the capacity to be present to love's work in the 21st century. Spiritual guidance for justice seekers.


November 24 | 9:30am & 11:30am Practice What We Preached

Can we attend whole truths, even in the broken places? Can we resist oversimplification, refuse to cast off the inconvenient, move deeper than guilt? Can we remember the horrible truths, revive the gift of gratitude, and censor neither? Preparing today's Unitarian Universalist for another day of Thanksgiving.

You can also download the materials from the September workshop: the presentation slides, including references and  the handout on culture based perspectives on conflict.
