2015-11-15 Who Did You Say You Are?

Rev. Beth Banks, Worship Leader; Ben Bazor, Worship Associate.

Initially this service was planned to be about transgender awareness, but the fundamental issues that emerged were authenticity and fluidity. Through the metaphor of a dance where once the traditional roles were clearly defined, we’ll consider issues of sexuality, gender, and presentation. And yes, there is an important theological message in the midst of all the turns and spins of this Sunday that applies to every life.

 

2015-11-01 The Good Life: Day of the Dead

Rev. Beth Banks, Worship Leader; Donna Sachs, Worship Associate.

The most common viewpoint about life and death among Unitarian Universalists is that we have one life to live. Each individual life is a journey that eventually meets the horizon and vanishes. Can we find the courage to accept that the day will come when our specific, individual life will near that vanishing point? Can we accept that those we love are also on that journey? One of the sources for the sermon is Being Mortal by Atul Gawande.
