This Memorial Day holiday weekend, on Sunday we will gather for worship and a message from our minister titled “To Remember Well” - we hope you will join us!
To a whole camp of soldiers, the notes of Taps meant that, unless you were on duty, you could close your eyes and you could sleep in peace. I didn’t know that story, or that sentiment all those years ago, when I played Taps for pocket money in the local cemetery. But in that meaning of Taps, something speaks to me in my heart and soul about dying, and, for those of us who remain, about remembering well. ~ Paul S. Sawyer
This Sunday we will continue our exploration of what it means to be a people of creativity with a
message titled “Eureka!” by the Rev. Kim Crawford Harvie. Our worship leader will be Laura McBride with
Kevin Daum serving as worship associate. We hope you will join us!
“We know we can’t control the arrival of insight; it doesn’t respond to ordinary commands. But it can be
coaxed… For those of us who prize tenacity, it turns out that diversion is really important. It’s about
incubation. Our addiction to constant stimulation, ... hyper-connectedness, [and] hyper-availability
[are] all enemies of insight. Instead, standing in line, waiting in traffic, or tasks that demand minimal intellectual firepower, such as dishes or laundry, can be “repurposed” for creativity, commandeered for inspiration. Realizing a great idea “could [also] be as simple as a little solitude,” minimizing the distractions that might be keeping an insight from surfacing…” ~ Kim K. Crawford Harvie
This coming Sunday, May 13, is a very special day in the life of our fellowship! Known as the “Flower Service,” our gathering for worship will feature the annual spring-time ritual of the Flower Communion plus a message from our minister titled “On Being a Co-Creative Community.” Our worship service will be followed immediately by the UUFCM Annual Meeting – please plan to join us!
Come celebrate the affirming, uniquely Unitarian Universalist ritual of Flower Communion. Developed by Czech Unitarian minister Norbert Capek who died a martyr at Dachau, the ritual celebrates the unity within our diversity and the intrinsic beauty of each and every soul. Please remember to bring a flower with you to service – preferably a flower you really love – to place in the communal vase in front of the sanctuary. And if you forget a flower don’t worry - we will have extra ones.
Well folks - it’s a new month and a new worship theme! This Sunday we will begin our exploration of the question “What does it mean to be a people of creativity?” with a message from our minister titled “Risking Creativity.” We hope you will join us!
“I invented this rule for myself to be applied to every decision I might have to make in the future. I would sort out all the arguments and see which belonged to fear and which to creativeness, and other things being equal I would make the decision which had the larger number of creative reasons on its side. I think it must be a rule something like this that makes jonquils and crocuses come pushing through the cold ”
