Rev. Lynn Gardner

Bread of Life

  Let us gather to explore gratitude as a spiritual practice, and to share in a bread communion where all are welcome. For what are you grateful? What nourishes you? What nourishes this community? Both choirs will be part of this Sunday celebration.

The Start of Something Good

Our UUA Congregational Life Consultant, the Rev. Evin Carvill Zeimer, joins us for the whole weekend! Come hear about what has transpired and lean into the future of our new shared ministry!

Honoring our Ancestors

Many religious and cultural traditions acknowledge in some form, the passing from corporeal to spirit or other form. On this day, we’ll honor the ancestors of our lives, both biological and spiritual/social kin. Bring a photo or memento to share and arrive a little early to add it to the altar/offrenda.

For All of Us

Members of the Aboriginal Activist Group of Queensland have said, ” If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.” Let us explore how dismantling oppression liberates all of us.  

What if we break?

Across the denomination congregations are participating in the next round of a teach-in about white supremacy culture. We’ll explore the concept of white fragility and how it can keep us, no matter one’s ethnic identity, from fully engaging in the hard healing work our world needs.

The Power of Forgiveness

Forgiveness is a choice, not an obligation. Why should we choose to forgive? Because forgiveness is a way of reducing suffering. Join us, during the Jewish High Holy Days, just before Yom Kippur, as we explore the complicated practice of choosing to forgive.

Rivers of Grace: Water Communion and Ingathering

Unitarian Universalists celebrate water communion in many ways. Bring a little bit of water that is from or symbolizes your summer ponderings and adventures. Bring your whole self as we celebrate the start of a new church year and welcome our new settled co-ministers! Stay for an all-congregation picnic and fun in the fountains!

Another Possibility Waiting

Who are we called to be? What are we called to do? This Unitarian Universalist faith invites us each and invites us all to become our best selves, to build beloved community. Is it possible?

Perfectly Imperfect: Life in the Arena

On this first Candidating Sunday, we’ll get to know the co-ministers a bit as they share who they are and their calling to ministry. We will lean in to the call for a UU teach-in about white supremacy culture this week.
